The Davenports’ Don’t Be Mad At Me
Earlier this year, David Myhr gave us Lucky Day, an album that is most certainly among the year’s best. Myhr’s name surfaces again, this time on the new Davenports album as co-writer of the song “I Don’t Know What To Do”. It’s just one of several highlights on Don’t Be Mad At Me, the latest from Scott Klass & Co.
From the opening piano ballad “Where Shall We Hang Elena” to the closing “To The End”, these very personal songs move the listener with clever arrangements and engaging melodies. With it’s frenetic pace and catchy chorus, the aforementioned “I Don’t Know What To Do” is a good example. So is the title track, a story involving a family situation, Klass’ aunt and dementia. And there’s plenty more to like here, too.
The Davenports’ Scott Klass is also a member of Look Park, Chris Collinsworth’s side project when he’s not doing the Fountains of Wayne thing with Adam Schlesinger. So it should come as no surprise that his songs are also smart and catchy. Get The Davenports’ Don’t Be Mad At Me in digital form from Amazon or on CD from Kool Kat Musik.
