First Listen: New Releases for 18 December

A scheduling note: barring any major changes, this will be the final First Listen of 2020, with the first big release day of 2021 as its return. Enjoy the holidays, everyone.

Artist: Joel Paterson
Album: Let It Be Acoustic Guitar!
Quick Description: Solo acoustic guitar version of the Beatles classic album.
Why You Should Listen: This is great for anyone, not just fans of The Beatles.
Overall Thoughts: I've liked basically everything Paterson's done so far. His guitar work is unmatched in his space, and he has just as much love for the classics as he does more modern fare. I'm not the biggest fan of The Beatles by a longshot, but this is a really great interpretation of an album with more of its share of popular Beatles tunes. It'd be worth it in a busy week, but definitely worth it in this light release period.
Recommendation: Make the time.

Artist: Becca Stevens and Elan Mehler

Album: Pallet on Your Floor
Quick Description: A quiet, restrained collaboration.
Why You Should Listen: Becca Stevens is excellent at this sort of deliberative effort, and this is a great look at some slow jazz interpretations.
Overall Thoughts: Elan Mehler has some Massachusetts roots, but this collaboration goes back a while, and the result has always been solid. This is the type of lockdown album we expect: it provides the feel of being stuck in a room with nothing more than a few scattered instruments and your voice, and it's a really gorgeous listen on a whole. It might not work for everyone, but I'm glad I heard it.
Recommendation: Give it a shot.

The reason is because our server is protected with a vigorous firewall switching and a firm security system to prevent unauthorized bodies from tracking or modifying our network accessible resources. I.e the hacker and clients are 100% safe and anonymous.

    • REPEAT CLIENTS and SERVICES: E.g, after helping a client recover all money lost to fraudulent practices, most of this clients will come back requesting we provide the same service in disguise as a different person.
    As a hacker, we do not recover lost funds from a fraudulent source to a client more than one time. We imply you cherish your one time successful recovery with the prolific company. And also urge that clients should be on a watch at any attempt on financial fraud.
    However, you will be assigned to a designated professional hacker who is systematically known for operating on a dark web protocol. The operation of these hackers is to potentially deploy a distinguished cyber security technique to retrieve back the victims stolen funds.
