Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2007-05-07This is the third album from the narrative songwriting indie, folk singer Sonny Smith. This release focuses largely on his hometown of Oakland, California, which automatically gives it the sound of a hip hop record, lyrically. His vocals are a bit twangy and lackadaisical, or empathetic, the acoustic lines are engaging, and there is enough motion going on around these songs to keep listeners occupied. Some songs to keep tuned on are track 2 “Good Folks Bad Folks,” and the final track, 10 “I’m so happy.” -Jake Burritt *No Play 4 “fuck” 7 “fuck it”
