It has been a little while since I have written about new music, so tonight I thought I would mention an artist I have been enjoying recently: David Poe. David is a singer / songwriter who creates lush and moody music. Part Jeff Buckley, part Chris Isaak, his songs are both intimate and atmospheric.
Love is Red is my favorite of his recordings and it is also an album that can be enjoyed from first song to last. Sample a few tracks on I Guess I’m Floating or purchase from iTunes or Amazon. I think that the standouts are Moon and Love Won’t Last the Afternoon, but I like them all.
