Indeed, the flow of good music from Melbourne, Australia continues, but this one sounds a bit different from the Melbourne bands we have recently written about. What a Time to be Alive is the debut album by Justin Freely, who wrote all the songs and did the vocals and guitars. The eight lyric focused topical and love songs form a multi genre collection; I’ve placed it in the indie pop category, but there are also influences from folk, blues, and even reggae (Shake It All Off). Thanks in part to the production and sound effects of Brooke Penrose (Saint Jude), this is an entertaining and engaging listening experience.
