Recommended Song: Ryan Webster – Baby Come Back
Waking up early this morning and looking out on Cambridge streets blanketed in white, it seemed appropriate to play a song that floated and vibed as much as the drifting snow. Like myself, Ryan Webster is a native of Rochester, NY – where seeing the sun is an unexpected treat, and 8 inches of snow is just called “Tuesday” and not a “Polar Vortex”.
Webster’s unofficial new video for “Baby Come Back” is far away from the Garbage Plates and perpetual snow of Rochester – using retro stock footage of Nuclear Testing and 60’s synchronized pool parties. With some random space shots thrown in at the end the video’s decidedly disjointed, but the song is anything but – carrying a careful, cool, and wistful tune through the longing of the lost. His voice is the star of the track, but it’s the easy free playing of a reverbed lead that pulls you in while drifting away.
