Parker Sprout, the brain and heart of Velvet Davenport, spent last winter recording to four-track his nearly here Warmy Girls
, Velvet Davenport's third release on local label well-on-the-rise Moon Glyph
, and their first on shellac. These sparse, sun-saturated excursions placably direct the mind to a moment, just out of reach, that never really happened; brand-new and of-somewhere-else and undeniably calming. Look elsewhere for sharp corners.
To prepare and fete Velvet Davenport's upcoming release and East Coast/European tour, they've got a new video and a new song for you to wade in.
The video is for the song "Mystery Michael," given the utmost recommendation by Altered Zones
, that recalls the Who's "Whiskeyman" at the very least in tone; strange, possibly invisible friends and optimistic outlooks and trippy sophisma.
