Cameron Matthews – C. C. Mama

“Singing’s gonna bring mama back to her place.” An acoustic guitar sets the mode for Cameron to whisper secrets about CC Mama that I may not want to hear, but his music insists I listen, so I may as well enjoy the tale. “It’s hard to say you’ve lost when you’ve already died,” he whispers melodically. The guitar does all the emoting in this song, and by the end is filled with vengeance. Delicious vengeance. At first the rhythm supports the narration, but before 2 minutes and 20 are over the rhythm argues with the narrator, creating an atmosphere of ‘watch out for me world, I’m coming’. Nice work.
