Lesser Oceans

Lesser Oceans

by Fences

CD

Overview

The sophomore album from Seattle singer/songwriter Christopher Mansfield, aka Fences, 2014's Lesser Oceans is a rootsy, melodic, and earnest album that straddles the line between moody indie rock, hip-hop, and folk. The album follows Fences' 2010 self-titled debut and, as with that album, showcases Mansfield's talent for crafting intimate, poignant songs that still have infectious pop hooks. Along with musical backing from longtime Fences member guitarist/keyboardist Benjamin Greenspan, Lesser Oceans features production from a handful of collaborators including Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Of Monsters and Men) and Chris Walla (the Decemberists, Death Cab for Cutie). Included on Lesser Oceans are the singles "Dusty Beds," "The Lake," "Songs About Angels," and "Arrows," featuring guest appearances from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
