Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Phil Barry

Between The Carolinas

2008-05-19

The more I listen to West Michigan artists, the more impressed I become. This region holds some real musical talent. If this disc is any indication, Phil Barry is every bit as talented as many national artists. You’ll find some very catchy tunes here from this Kalamazoo artist, formerly of the band Knee Deep Shag. This is very accessible, well-produced music, with straightforward lyrics, nice vocals, and fine instrumentals. These are mostly love songs about troubled relationships, but instead of being angst-ridden downers, they’re short and hook-laden. I only wish there was more to this disc, which comes in under 26 minutes. - Tim Smith
