Moments from another time with contemporary themes write the signature on Bart Davenport albums. Physical World fuses fun compositions with near-crooning vocals to create a soundtrack to 21st-century living.
Favorite track: Fuck Fame.
A near-perfect blend of soft rock and pop. Start with a little Randy Vanwarmer, add a dash of The Smiths, infuse a pinch of Louis Philippe, and finish it off with a smidgen of Steely Dan. Nice album.
Favorite track: Girl Gotta Way.

Remember how Bill Murray woke up to I Got You Babe every day in Groundhog Day? If that song would have been Made Of Moods, he at the very least experienced three and a half perfect minutes each day. It’s one of those songs that I enjoy each and every second of, with it’s jangly guitars and hushed vocals that almost have a Beach Boys vibe, especially in the verse. Truly, it’s a song for the ages. But the best news about Still Life is that it offers eleven additional underground pop gems. Niek || Add To Wantlist
