Charmed Pop from Silent James
Cruising through my usual spots, I noticed that Discos de Korlian had a few new releases up this weekend. One was the reissue of the Yetis 2014 EP, but for this post, let’s turn to the new record from Silent James. It’s an enchanting bit of balladry, with the focus consistently circling the voice of Jaume Benedito. There’s also something nostalgic in its sound; it’s singer-songwriter fare elevated with varying bits of accompaniment, giving off a natural swing…a kin to the earliest of Jens Lekman. What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up will certainly live up to the charms of this track.
