After months of abstaining from composition, Erik Kerr, a recent college graduate recording under the name Toujours, broke his fast while in Bergen, a picturesque city in Norway. This and a handful of other tracks come at the end of a spontaneous world tour that brought Kerr from temporary homes in Osaka, Hong Kong, Cairo, Istanbul, and ultimately Norway, where he's now recording in a rented room on borrowed equipment. His first single, "Mariner," is lush, bedroom chamber pop, bolstered by a set of highly dynamic vocal tracks and instrumentation - every low tech wanderer's first recordings after months on the road should sound so good.
