Brand new and sealed CD, a six-track EP of folk pop songs, which sound like long lost friends. Shaun David Milella writes lyrics that are almost conversational; like improvised narratives that can lead anywhere. Of course, that's unlikely to be the case, but it's an affectation that's quite captivating. Produced with a seven-piece band, and an instrumental line-up that includes guitar, bass, drums / percussion, keys, saxophone and trombone, there's no shortage of interesting things happening. Opening track "Please Come Get Your Things" arrives on a shuffling island rhythm, with a twisting saxophone adding to the effect. Milella's words fill in the spaces with the detail. His voice is sometimes a little similar to Jonathan Richman's, which is perfect on "Diamonds", and on the organ / sax flecked title track, he harnesses a soulful sheen, which isn't unlike listening to Flight of the Conchords, though applied with more serious intent.
