Michael Farley 

Moments and Memories (RTT Records)


Singer-songwriter-turned-media-pimp Michael Farley returns to his old line of work in Moments and Memories, a warm acoustic set that musters up some serious feeling.

Farley's fifth album (his first since 2002) follows the veteran on a journey from and to his home, and then away again — through rings of fire, Saturday nights, and Sunday mornings. Old fans will recognize the miss-you-blind love letter "Home for Good" and a stripped-down version of 1999's "Say Goodbye." The steady stream of midtempo strumming wears thin, but the new disc is like a pot of custom-blended java: 11 doses may make you bristle, but a couple cups will get your head right.
