Editors’ Notes

When he’s not recording videogame music or singing the national anthem at San Francisco Giants games, Brad Brooks is crafting the kind of timeless sophisticated pop revisionism that disciples of Harry Nilsson and Badfinger can dig. His third studio album, Harmony of Passing Light, opens with the cleverly arranged “Calling Everyone,” a snappy ditty wherein he grafts psychedelic West Coast grooves onto an East Coast template cut by Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes. And without getting into full Fab Four worship, hints of The Beatles’ influence are sprinkled throughout. Check out “Steal My Disarray,” which sounds slightly like All Things Must Pass–era George Harrison blended seamlessly into Brooks’ own stylish power pop. “Spinner & the Spun” sublimely reflects the darker period of John Lennon’s tenure with The Plastic Ono Band—especially with a subtle vocal echo and frenetic guitar shredding. And if Paul McCartney ever took on blue-eyed soul, it could very well sound something like the standout cut “Exemplary Girl.”

Customer Reviews

Says Country, but this Ain't Your Average Country

I don't even care for Country music much. Mr. Brooks has put together an extremely well-crafted record here, and I guess I'd call it Country Pop (Pop Country is different). There's a lot of bluesy undertones, and "Spinner & The Spun" reminds me of a lower key Queens of the Stone Age.

The vibes are familiar, but beautifully weird… keeping your ear perking the entire time. These songs get stuck in my head all day and it's awesome. See them live if you can. Such a fun show, and quite a group of players.

Best kept secret in SF?

This record is absolutely great, and stacks up against anything you've heard in the last year. Don't miss out. If you love music, you will love this album.

Authenticity

One of the most compelling albums I've listened to this year. What sets his music apart is the authenticity of his vocals/lyrics and music. Keep in mind that I'm considered an 'old timer' having grown up with Hendrix, Joplin, Clapton, the Beatles and those artists forever skewed my view of great storytelling and music. Brooke's music, although vastly different from any of the aforementioned musicians contains an authenticity common to each of those of the past. For those looking for something very different from today, but with the character of voices from the past, I'd give him a listen. His music is both relevant and timeless.
