"Words & Tricks" is the debut release from young Boston-area songwriter James Roseman. The album signifies a more than good start. Largely an acoustic pop sound, Roseman demonstrates allegiance to his role models (e.g. his Postal Service cover) and an ear for catchy melody, but his musical versatility is clear. “Words & Tricks” is an endearing, homey project with Roseman playing multiple instruments, each track delivered in an exploratory and sometimes rough-cut style. Still, as he'll be the first to tell you, it’s all about the process. I'd like to think this means we'll be hearing more from him in the future.
