Mellow Pop from Sweet Baboo

Man, this is possibly my favorite discovery of the week, and it’s only Monday.  Sweet Baboo is a Welsh songwriter who has warmed my heart today with his latest single, which will be featured on his upcoming album, Ships–slated to be released by Moshi Moshi in April.  When the tune opens, it’s a smooth pop croon, though the accent gives it sort of that oddball Devandra Banhart quality.  That’s all well-and-good, but the eruption of horns and vocals during the chorus is quite remarkable.  I have a feeling that this tune will find its way to haunt my mind and ears for sometime to come; I hope it does the same for you.
