Paul Bergmann’s New Video for “Old Dream”

Sometimes a song jumps out at you, other times it simply seeps into your subconscious like rainwater being absorbed into the ground. Paul Bergmann’s new single, released on 7″ vinyl this week, is one of the latter type.

Bergmann, like Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, or Eric Andersen, isn’t the greatest singer or most vocally adept, but he gets the emotional heft of a lyric across in true Dylan-esque fashion here. Production-wise it’s quaintly retro, hearkening back to Cohen’s “So Long, Marianne” sound only with more tambourine; this could have been released in 1969 and it would have fit right in to the burgeoning art-folk scene.
