ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
NYC-based singer-songwriter John Brodeur came to recognition with "Tiger Pop", his 2001 (entirely) solo debut album. The record's combination of earnest lyrics, bold melodies, and experimental instrumentation, garnered strongly favorable reviews from the media and fans alike (as seen below). It was a great creative payoff from the young pop maestro--"Infected" and "Sucker" became featured tracks on retail and media samplers, and Brodeur took opening slots with the likes of They Might Be Giants, Angie Aparo, David Poe, Freedy Johnston, and more.

Fans of a more streamlined power-pop sound would appreciate Brodeur's next effort, "Mix Tape", with his band the Suggestions. The Suggestions were born when Brodeur teamed with guitarist-bassist Keith Hosmer and drummer Jason Schultz. A minor radio hit in early 2003, "Mix Tape" reached CMJ's top 150, and the Top 10 at commercial-alternative-specialty radio. The group toured the east coast and midwest throughout 2003 and opened for groups ranging from Vertical Horizon to Fountains of Wayne to Paranoid Social Club to Gavin DeGraw.

REVIEWS:
"Pop records like this may be scarce, but when they are of this caliber, they won't remain under the radar for long." (Performing Songwriter, 11/01)

"One wild, creative, imaginative ride... Brodeur is a cross between Rufus Wainwright and Beck." (Indie-Music.com, 7/01)

"It's hard to get enough of this one - put this on your want list." (Shake It Up!, 7/01)

"Something of a phenomenon... This is one mighty album." (hEARd, 6/01)

"...a richly rewarding recording - 11 tunes of ambitious, shimmering pop that stands up against most like-minded major-label efforts. Snappy, crackling-good pop." (Albany Times Union, 12/00)

Bleak House

Nice one!
More of the "high notes" please. Strip down the next CD to acoustic/double bass/piano/banjo and you'll be heading in the right direction my friend. Don't follow the herd - go in the opposite direction. Space is more powerful than matter/clutter.
