2016 Playlist: Impossible Hand – Stephen Steinbrink

On Impossible Hand, Stephen Steinbrink manages to sound like Figure 8-era Elliott Smith with a touch of Real Estate. He even says ‘psychic pain’ at one point (which is a line that I’m fully aware is from ‘From a Basement on a Hill’, thanks). That said, Impossible Hand has a breeziness that Smith, for various reasons, could never muster… and probably didn’t feel like he ever needed to.
