Beyond the crushing, stripped-down simplicity of “past mary,” Vagrant Sabbatical has an amazing backstory. Having been sent from “Hawaii to Queens to Vermont to California” over the past few years and holding three different jobs, he simply hasn’t had the time or the space to set up a true makeshift studio. Enter his latest album, recorded entirely using the voice memos app on his phone. “mary” is the lead single full of lyrical bombs that would make both Attic Abasement and Hold Steady fans blush.
