Brad San Martin may be an unknown name to you, but if you have followed the indiepop genre for some years, you may know his band One Happy Island – one of my personal favourites. He has previosly released his solo musicas Secret Charisma, but is now going by his own name, and recently released his new album on Jigsaw Records. I have listened to this over and over and over again, and I’m completely in love with his new music. A strong contender for my album of the year-list. Maybe you’ll love it too?
light-hearted pop, ukuleles, folky indiepop, sweet, harmonies, melodic, ba-ba-ba’s, catchy. “a vintage Harry Nilsson or Van Dyke Parks album, but on Elephant 6″…
The album is simply great, and if you love good, classic melodies and good lyrics, sometimes with fun ways to look at things, you’ll love this one.
