The Gunshy
To Remember/To Forget (Sleep Recordings)

By: Alex Steininger

Using the moniker The Gunshy, Lancaster, PA's Matt Arbogast, with the help of his acoustic guitar and husky voice, delivers pensive, heart-on-sleeve ramblings, intimate love songs, and timid insights into life from the eyes of a singer-songwriter. Preferring the subtle to the intrusive, To Remember/To Forget doesn't cry on your shoulder or make you feel down. Instead, it speaks its mind without pushing you away, playing to your mood. Coming across dark and depressed when you need it, and able to conjure up the feelings to put you to bed after a memorable evening, the album holds strong throughout and gives you plenty of ammunition to come back to. Its only fault is its inability to veer off course, staying true to the original concept and never deviating from the laid back, lo-key approach. I'll give it a B.
