Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Vandaveer

Grace & Speed

2007-04-16

Front man of the Apparitions, Mark Charles, split off to produce this solo album. The result is a soothing yet melancholy collection of songs with a nostalgic, folksy air. His work on this album pays tribute to his obvious musical influences from the 60s and 70s as well as current artists, his voice reminiscent at times of Bob Dylan. “The Streets Is Full Of Creeps” even brings Tom Waits to mind. Throughout the album, melody and rhythm are pleasantly applied along with graceful acoustic guitar work. - Meredith VanHarn
