I am a young man who records songs on his 4-track in his bedroom. – Desmond Reed from his myspace page

Some truly classic albums have been made by musicians holed up in a bedroom with their 4-track recorders, Bruce Springsteen‘s Nebraska and Cody ChesnuTT‘s The Headphone Masterpiece to name but a couple. Desmond Reed may not yet have created his classic, but he’s been making some damn fine pop music there in his bedroom in Orange, Massachusetts. Imagine if you put Fountains of Wayne or Nada Surf and The Barenaked Ladies in a bedroom with a 4-track and told them to whip up a batch of songs. Now you have an idea of what Desmond’s songs sound like. Lyrics with a sense of humor and enough melodic hooks and harmonies to make Brian Wilson proud. Check it out. Dance. Laugh. Sing along. Enjoy the ride.
