Last year while searching Youtube for a video of the great Clyde McPhatter singing his classic "Lover Please" (although I’m not sure why), I came across a cover version of the song performed by David Macmichael, the lead singer of a Canadian Indie pop-rock group called The Danger Bees.
Macmichael did a nice rendition of the classic, so I started looking for more info on the Toronto-based band. They had just released a new album— Wyatt — I gave it a listen and really dug the record from beginning to end. Here’s the official video from the album’s first single, “Good Year.”
Macmichael also writes a majority of the lyrics and is pretty deft at turning a phrase. On my favorite cut off the album "Heartless Jane," for example: “I'm not a leader unless I'm dragging people down, which is what I do when I decide that I do not want you around.”
Wyatt is a fun record full of well-written lyrics and catchy melodies. Don’t fall too in love though. While the popularity of the Danger Bees is climbing up in the provinces, I haven’t noticed any U.S. dates. But hey, Toronto’s not that far away, right?
This is the best news I've heard all summer.
The chemical impact of these compressor stations is VERY VERY small, almost obsolete. Especially if…
what a pussy!
