Album Notes
if only you knew...



to write a review


i love drew.
this cd is amazing. just like drew. my favorite song on this album is Know your history before you become part of the repetition. it just gets me. right there. *points to heart*


Best enjoyed with sunglasses and coffee....
This CD is exactly what you need in the morning with a cup of Jo and the sun on your face... it's like your favourite little secret, enjoy before everybody else finds out!

Better than cake
This CD is all about lazy, straightforward delivery, warm jangly instruments and super-nice lyrics: "You live, you give, you lose, you grow - but you don't grow responsible," and the oh-so-pretty "rainbow days come after rain". Those who are fond of all that intimate, honest, hopeful kind of folk-pop singer-songwriter nonsense will be terribly pleased. Yay.

The CD shows just what you can find if you look deep enough. I'm from the UK and I would never have 'found' Drew had I not been tired and bored of the prescriptive way we ordinarily get to hear new music. Radio 1 is not abe to platform new artists to the extent it would like, having the constraints of a play list for much of their programme time. NME the main new music publication, does feature more new music but maybe not as much as it should, Bring back a rival paper is what I say (bemoaning the merge of NME and Melody Maker). Drew's fine musical loom spins not only great music and pleasure stemming from it but also wonderment at how many people are missing out on this experience. I hope Drew gets the exposure it deserves, perhaps now that colin has left edith on Radio 1 to try and pick up where John Peel (RIP)left off, people like Drew can once again shine. Good luck Drew, keep playing.


This CD was very heartfelt and you can tell. Drew seems like an awesome person and his personality comes through in his music, you know, that geniune quirk of sarcasm with a side of sincerity. :)


One listen and I'm hooked!
Thanks a ton Drew. I love this disc. I will definately purchase the other ASAP! The music is varied, unique, and well written.

This cd has been playing in my car and apartment non stop since it's arrival.

It's sooooo amazing, and I love every song.

Crystal Eller

I love it!
I bought both cds and I absolutely love them--who doesn't love the tuba?? Clever lyrics, music with depth..it's got everything. The only thing that tops the cds, would be the live show. You rock, Drew!

it's not bad allright?
Drew Danburry
Drew Danburry = Elliott Smith + Bright Eyes

Drew's vulnerable, naked-heart-on-the-sleeve, psychologically-helpless indie-rock folk spillings - it's not bad allright? But the song titles are the best part: "It starts with indigo, orange and green," "It ends with red, violet and orange, "Coming around like the karate kid." It's best when Drew gets slower as in, "Know your history before you become part of the repetition;" acoustic guitar and muted vocals are all you need to rip the listener's bleeding, still-beating heart from their sliced-open ribcage.

Latest from Utah statesman coming to Moorhead tomorrow

What a difference a few months makes.

Drew Danburry’s first release outside of the Danburrys, An Introduction to Sex Rock, was released just last year. It was an amalgam of indie scraps — from beeps and clicks to abstract imagery.

Needless to say, some of its flow was compromised because of its heady experimental nature.

Not so with Besides…. “Le Premiere Chagrin” launches the album, and successfully lets listeners know that Danburry has been listening to either a lot of late-period Radiohead or, well, just Grandaddy.

Either way, while the electronics quickly float away, this new musical diet pays off for the Utah statesman: Besides… moves breathlessly from start to finish.

And while the song titles aren’t nearly as funny as the previous album’s (small complaint), it again just goes to show how much more focused Danburry is on this sophomore release.

While Danburry’s art jumps all over the place (a phenomenon that can only be described as “indie chameleon”), it’s reassuring to know that he’s willing to try anything. More importantly, though, is the fact that he always succeeds — and that’s more anyone can say for adventuresome folks like Neil Young and David Bowie.

Danburry will be appearing at Selah House of Coffee in Moorhead tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. (See story above.)
