New discovery

Brett Dennen - Hope For The Hopeless
(Dualtone, 2008)


Read about this California singer/songwriter in the latest issue of the british rockmagazine Uncut. They reviewed this album and gave it four of five stars which in turn triggered my curiosity. Been listening to this, his third release, all night and it sounds really good. It may lack a bit of diversity, but sometimes that's ok. Dennen writes good popsongs in the same vein as Josh Rouse and good ol' James Taylor. My favourites so far are the album opener "San Francisco", a great song about a city I visited last year and long to come back to, and the song "Heaven" which the title of the album is taken from.

So is there any hope for the hopeless, well, I certainly hope so.
