Farewell J.R“Skin Pieces” opens in the most opulent and heavenly way possible. Sparse vocals and simple musical tones set the mood for what turns into a flowering composition that seems symphonic in spite of the forlorn landscape the track finds itself dwelling in. If there’s one thing Cambridge musician Farewell J.R (real name Nick Raynor) knows, it's how to create and mold a song into something operating on another plain, as witnessed on his EP Health. “Skin Pieces” takes the listener on a route of unsteady and uneasy assuredness. You’re putting your trust into slightly unstable, indefinite space, constantly at risk of collapse, but Farewell J.R guides you carefully through an auditory maze that is as enchanting as it is unsafe.
