GUMSHOE: The Governor’s Brother: CDEP

Apr 08, 2019

Athens, Ga. band that dives into lovesick laments with a sly wink and a nod. The singer even wrote a song about an affair he wishes would happen but sadly did not (“Amorosa”). “I Am the Sun” features some horn parts that keep the proceedings moving. “Bye Bye Baby” has a vocal melody that leans towards Roy Orbison territory. There’s also a song about carrots that is fairly amusing. It is all played ably and with subtlety. I would like to tell you more about this band, but the liner notes on my CD just have a story on the back about a guy getting tasered into oblivion. –Sean Koepenick (Self-released, [email protected])
