5.0 out of 5 stars Jangly Jazz Pop - For fans of The Clientele, Sam Prekop and The Sea And Cake, 30 Jun 2014

This review is from: Donovan Blanc (Audio CD)
Captured Tracks is a small Brooklyn based label that has been releasing an abundance of great music lately. Their latest is the excellent debut by the New Jersey duo of Joseph Black and Raymond Schwab, known collectively as Donovan Blanc.

Stylistically they sound astonishingly similar to The Clientele (one of my all time favorite bands) without being derivative. There's also an element of that mid-60s, jangly, 12-string guitar Chad & Jeremy / Peter & Gordon sound, which I also love. And like albums by The Clientele and The Sea & Cake (circa 1999), all of the songs are of the same larger piece; more like a suite than a collection of radio-friendly pop songs.

Intelligent music for the NPR crowd.

The first 200 copies of this are on lavender vinyl from the Captured Tracks web store.
