"What kind of love hits you just enough to feel anxious and leaves you alone?" ... a line from the beautifully textured single, "Henry Miller," released via Victor Pokorny's solo project, Lori Lori Lay. The self-recorded track is layered with mandolin, piano, synthesizer, box-type percussion, and multiple shades of Pokorny's knack for vocal pop bliss. The track, along with the bouncy, made-for-TV soundtrack tune, "You're Breaking My Heart!" were both released during his summer break from University of Wyoming and exemplifies why he's one of the more interesting composers to call Jackson home in the last decade. While these recordings have a demo-esque vibe, it goes to show that it doesn't really matter when the writing is hooky, tactful and at times, seemingly off-the-cuff and tastefully imperfect. Pokorny fits a lot of musical ideas in a short time frame, an evolution in direct response to how he views the shift in music consumption. Notable, too, is that these recordings came free of baggage, i.e., Kickstarter campaigning, press releases, artwork, media buildup, or an album release party. Just music being made in a bedroom and shoved into the airwaves. There's something refreshingly underground about that...
