Seth Blair releases new LP record ‘Mendable’

The precocious pop singer and songwriter, Seth Blair, has released his newest record, an LP called “Mendable.” The album is comprised of 14 original tracks for a total playing time of 52 minutes, making for an excellently comprehensive introduction to this rising star for listeners who have not yet experienced his music. A collection of mostly pop-oriented electronic dance tracks that are exceedingly suitable for casual listening, “Mendable” is poised to bring Seth Blair into the limelight he clearly deserves.

Seth Blair is the birth name of the artist previously known as Digital Optimism, under which moniker Blair has published three full-length albums, “Want You Bad,” “Neon Nitrogen,” and “Up and Down.” At the young, yet apparently very ripe age of 17, this makes him one of the most prolific music composers in his age group, averaging four LP records in three years. In addition, the variety in these LPs is also remarkable.

Though recorded back-to-back over a relatively short period, an experimental trajectory is clear over the four records that outlines a surprisingly complex diversity in styles. Blair is not one to shy from a fun idea for the sake of conceptual consistency. “Mendable,” like the records preceding it, takes turns that one is not expecting, revealing Seth Blair to be not only a courageously creative songwriter, but also a very versatile singer and performer.

This is perhaps partially due to his wide range of instrumental interests.

“I’ve always been involved with music,” he writes, “whether through school band or private lessons. I have played guitar, trumpet, piano, ukulele, keyboard, and have dabbled with the banjo and harmonica.”

In thinking about the array of musical instruments he practices on, he suddenly muses about how this came to be, saying, “I must thank my parents for setting up piano lessons for me, as that began my journey with music.”

“Mendable” by Seth Blair is available online worldwide beginning spring of 2013.
