ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Pure pop for now people from the City of Angels. As sumptuous as some of your fave BADFINGER songs, with a singer more reminiscent of DWIGHT TWILLEY. Feels like a cool breeze caressing my cheek from 1975, a time of blissful ignorance and silly simplicity, blowing a promise of hopeful things to come…

SOUNDS LIKE: SUFJAN STEVENS, ELLIOTT SMITH, WAXWINGS

SUGGESTED TRACKS:
3 “Stanley Waited” (acoustic folk-pop bliss)
9 “Andy’N’Me” (slow and surprisingly emotional)"

--Russel Forster, Pirate Cat Radio.

Anne

What a voice!
Even if there were no luscious pop chords on this record, I could listen to it just for J's voice. Wow. What a voice. This record feels a lot like The Beach Boys' "Smiley Smile," or the High Llamas' "Hawaii" or "Can Cladders," or any other pop albums that have a lot of songs with tiny little instrumental breaks in between. Many of the songs are under 2 minutes- as a listener I enjoyed having so many little snippets of pop goodness, each one with its own distinct character. Definitely recommended if you like Sloan, The Beach Boys, or The Zombies.
