This new Stephen Steinbrink number dropped at the end of the day yesterday, so why not start off our Friday by pointing you in the right direction…in case you missed out. While he’s toured in various acts through the years, he also has an extensive discography…but perhaps Utopia Teased will be the pinnacle. This track works around the softness of Steinbjrink’s voice and this rolling guitar line that seems built for ferrying you and your friends down some lone river even gets some aid from Melina from Jay Som to throw in some nice harmonies. Look for the new LP on November 9th via Western Vinyl.
When you listen to this new track from Stephen Steinbrink, don’t expect to hear new ground being broken, or something overly exciting. What you will hear, however is the perfect execution of pop songwriting. The song has a great natural melody circling around the work of the guitar, while Steinbrink’s airy vocal tones fit into the fold perfectly.Sometimes you just enjoy the pleasure of great songwriting that fulfills your emotional listening needs, and this does just that. Look for Stephen’s album, Anagrams, to hit on July 1st via Melodic Records.
