H. DJ Pancake is a lo-fi-folk project from the USA.
Contemplating of a world subjugated to morose subservience, the third of the four tracks on the EP Any City Now (available on bandcamp) Love & Taxes has a catchy opening hook which has the listener attached as the tremorous vocal shimmers into the ears.
It is the fragility of the sounds, which require the audience to focus, that gives the material its intrigue. Accompanying the fluttering voice is an acoustic guitar which sounds as though fingers are only tentatively placed on the strings.
There is an intense power that emerges from the speakers for the very timidity of the Love & Taxes as H. DJ Pancake demonstrates that to have impact doesn’t require being the one who shouts most loudly.
