Los Angeles songwriter Alex Izenberg describes his debut album as the culmination of five years of writing and recording, which is a long time for a record that feels like the product of a few casual studio sessions. A modernist spin on the ’70s singer-songwriter album, grounded in the same evergreen themes of longing and heartache, Harlequin often seems torn between its ambition and its nonchalance. The record’s best numbers are those rare ones when the adornments take a back seat to the songs themselves. On the early highlight Grace, Izenberg laments losing himself in a misguided crush, and lands one of the better forehead-slap lyrics this side of Rivers Cuomo’s I’m dumb, she’s a lesbian : Darkness had taken over me, he sings, Once I’d seen her engagement ring.
