New Music : Waiting For The Sunrise With David Vandervelde

Just about a year ago, I saw David Vandervelde play one of the best shows I witnessed in all of 2007. He was touring in support of his first album, The Moonstation House Band, a melodic swirling, psychedelic, glamrock gem steeped deep in the influence of artists like Marc Bolan and and David Bowie. For his new one, Waiting For The Sunrise, David softens the focus a little bit an comes up up with a twist on that sound that ends up falling somewhere between the seventies California sheen of Fleetwood Mac and the midwestern alt country pop of The Jayhawks, and even includes a song co written with Jay Bennett of Wilco. If you’re currently digging on the new folky sounds of bands like Fleet Foxes or Midlake, this is one you won’t want to miss.
