George Barnett – 17 Days

17 Days front cover by Mikey Welsh

The Brit was 17 when he wrote the tracks for the album. He also played many of instruments used — drums, bass, guitars, piano, trumpets, harmonica.  The dexterity reminds me of Gotye. 17 Days was “recorded in a bedroom, a living room, a bungalow, a church.”

There is a very fresh energy in this album — best of pop but swerved in a fresh organic energy. I don’t know what that means, but try some of my favorites from the album and you might find out.
