EP des Tages: Bart & Friends – It´s Not The Words That You Say (LIFE089,2012)
von /the weekender!
Once again Bart Cummings assembles his international supergroup with the new Bart and Friends EP It’s Not the Words That You Say available August 21 on Shelflife.
Founding member of the legendary Cat’s Miaow, Bart has spent the past two decades jangling our heart strings. Now he returns to the scene with his cast of indie pop ambassadors from around the globe including Pam Berry (Black Tambourine, The Pines, The Castaway Stones, etc), Scott Stevens (Summer Cats, The Earthmen), Mark Monnone (The Lucksmiths), Louis Richter (Mid State Orange, The Lucksmiths), and Jeremy Cole (The Zebras).
Those familiar with previous Bart and Friends releases may be surprised by It’s Not the Words That You Say. Bart and Pam have handed the microphone over to Scott who takes the lead on all six tracks. It’s also the group’s most polished effort to date, but they haven’t forgotten their DIY indie pop roots. The EP is harmony-rich with a laid back feel pulling influences from mid ’60s groups like The Byrds and The Zombies as well as current classic pop records like Holiday’s Ready, Steady, Go! As you listen you really get a sense that these great musical minds are all clicking together in unison.
2012 is an especially great year because we get not one, but two fantastic offerings from the band. In June they released a sister EP There May Come A Time on Matineé Recordings.
