Sublime folk-pop from the producers of Miss Mary's "Hey Blue!"
Good for a Gander, Mellin's follow-up to his "tour de force"* Jeff Mellin Saves the World, is a record you'll lose yourself in. Lush arrangements. California cum Liverpool harmonies. A record of sad songs that will make you happy. Not that it's morose by any means-it flows over with Mellin's melodicism, lyric wit, and pop sensibility. But throughout there's a comforting melancholy, like a blanket pricked with pinhole stars pulled up over an incandescent moon.
