Austin Bullock, a promising DIY musician hailing from Providence, Rhode Island, is in the midst of developing his most ambitious work to date. His latest album, Jubilate, was released last July and is the second release in a trilogy of albums dropped within the year. The third is slated to come out later this fall.

Each of the three albums, according to Bullock, represents the three parts of a balanced, stereotypical American work day: eight hours labor, eight hours recreation, eight hours rest. As Jubilate symbolizes a period of recreation, stand-out tune “Doughy” fits in the tracklist perfectly with its carefree vibe.

The song dabbles in psych-rock while employing a reggae-esque beat that gives the whole thing a “laid-back” kind of feel. The bright guitar fills stand out in the reverb-soaked production, reminiscent of optimistic sunbeams bursting through on a cloudy day.

On “Doughy”, Bullock succeeds at capturing the fluidity and flexibility of life, both lyrically and instrumentally. Pushing against genre boundaries and, symbolically, against the notion that life is rigid and confining. It’s definitely a pick-me-up, to say the least.
