“Seventeen” is an endearing track of enduring love from Cody Crump, a rising singer/songwriter from Los Angeles who reminds partly of Elliott Smith’s breath-y vocals, Bright Eyes’ emotive acoustical escapades, and Coconut Records’ concisely bright pop. “I just want you to know that I’m coming home,” he sings during the hook, enhanced by guitars and […] The post Cody Crump – “Seventeen” appeared first on .

Reminding […] The post wwoman – “New Ferments” appeared first on .
“Lady In Blue” provides an immediate dose of ’90s nostalgia, its melody and structure sounding somehow simultaneously familiar and refreshing. The scaled-back hook at the 30-second mark works nicely, further enhancing the distortion-friendly power-pop that follows until 01:10, when a crunchy subdued section provides another interlude of sorts.
