Album Notes
"...McKnight remembers when the song held the power, not the sample; and when the tune ruled the airwaves, not the beat. But that doesn’t make McKnight some kind of retro freak, mining the vinyl bins for forgotten sounds. It just means he understands that the best pop music is timeless, throwaway and worthwhile all in the same instant. McKnight likes a hook. Heck, he loves a hook. And he tosses them off effortlessly. They’re the kind of closet classics that will have you singing along by the second chorus...."

5 EP Pieces
"5 EP Pieces is chock-full of great, feel-good hooks. It's an excellent amalgam of styles reminiscent of Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, The Beatles, The Kinks, Squeeze, and Clive Gregson's Any Trouble. I'm having a hard time choosing between "Glad You Came Around" and "Something Better" as my fave. On the one hand, "Glad You Came Around" is a hands-down pop hit, but on the other hand, "Something Better" could be a Smile-era Brian Wilson classic . So for me, I guess it's a toss-up!"
