Just a reminder that Bay Area cult hero Bart Davenport has a new solo album out today, Palaces. The Kelley Stoltz-produced disc is on SF indie Antenna Farm and features stellar contributions from some of the Bay Area’s top musicians, including Stoltz, Angelina Moysov (Persephone’s Bees), Tony Sevener & Hervé Salters (Honeycut).   Also a member of Quannum Records electro future-funk trio Honeycut (their song, “Exodus Honey,” was used in a recent iMac ad),  Bart has created a version of nouveau sophisticated pop that references everything from Scott Walker, Brit Folk, Bossa Nova (Os Mutantes) and even Philly Soul -- think Style Council had they come from SF. Davenport’s effortlessly rich, nuanced vocals capture a cohesive fusion of traditional and indie pop, with wry lyrics that sparkle with plainspoken poetry in insight. Let me know if you’re interested, planning any coverage or need anything.


Check out the laid-back, retro groove of “A Young One” on Bart’s new video:
