A former Triangle songwriter now based in New York, Jason Harrod claims indirect connections to several of indie rock's biggest stars in the press materials for his new album, Highliner. The man who produced it, for instance, has worked with Sharon Van Etten and The National, while he also gets some help from members of the Danielson Famile. But just as you and your co-workers three floors down have little in common, Harrod's milquetoast folk-rock has little to do with that. Instead, the perfectly pleasant songs suggest Harrod's wandering around the erstwhile H.O.R.D.E. Festival, trying to find the second stage for an early-afternoon slot.
