Medicine Mouth is Zachary Carroll's debut solo EP.
One Minute Cassette Reviews described Zachary Carroll’s new release by saying, “Medicine Mouth is a collection of six songs that flow seamlessly from first note to last.” “Zachary weaves acoustic melodies with electric leads, along with mellow percussion in a DIY sensibility that adds up to a glorious yet brief EP. Minimalists decree that less is more, and with Medicine Mouth six exceptional songs leaves one savoring what we’ve been given. Essential summer listening.”
Raised by Gypsies described Zachary’s music as being, “somewhere between Daniel Johnston and Neil Young” with allusions to Jack Johnson, Lou Reed, Ed Schrader’s Music Beat and My Pleasure.
The reviewer goes on to say, “The more you listen to it- both by how far you get into the songs and how many times you listen to it- the more you will begin to hear how complicated this music is. On the surface it might seem simple, but I like to think of it as being like the clouds. Clouds seem so simple, they’re all mostly just white, but when you consider how they form, what they’re made up of exactly, then you just see them in a different light.”
