Impatient browsers might flip by HAPPINESS IS EASY assuming it's some miscellaneous artists' label promo, but even though producer Dylan Magierek (aka MISC.) has wrangled many guest musicians and there's a slightly different feel to every song, HAPPINESS plays through like a proper, cohesive record. Borrowing the talents of studio guests like producer and frequent American Music Club pedal steel guy Bruce Kaphan and Los Angeles poet-songwriter Daniel Ahearn, Magierek fleshes out his spacious, often cinematic home recordings in a clever, appealing way.

The results are frequently moody: "Such a Fighter" recalls prime Low, whose "Sea" Magierek not coincidentally covers here.
