If you'll bear with me, I'll just quote myself on +Jodie Landau
, whose debut album, "You Of All Things," is simply a must-hear, just out from +Bedroom Community
. At +Thought Catalog
in my #MusicForWriters
piece, I wrote:
"Jodie Landau is the music industry’s new Cyrano de Bergerac, a flirt of endless guile.
"He yanks in every single thing he can find to play (he’s a percussionist), or write, or compose, all in the service of getting under your skin. He wants every musician, every engineer, every color, every breath, every possible way into your heart and your mind and he succeeds.
"In listening to "You Of All Things," you’ll get it. It is all about you. All about him romancing you. And if you can listen to the full album and not fall in love with this guy, then you need to go back and listen again."
Special honors to Landau's many collaborators including +Valgeir Sigurðsson +wild Up
Graduale Nobili, +Christopher Rountree
and a host of others. So worth your time.
