Product Notes

Pink Humpy's musicians have lived in Philly their whole lives, but judging by the sound of their chill soulful indie rock music you might think they belong by the beach in San Diego. Since 2004, singer songwriter Brendan T. Brennan has led this group of like-minded artists on their creative journey. In 2008, Pink Humpy is unleashing their debut LP 'Your Diamond Ring and My Guitar'. The album has a breathy, soft, simple and natural sound that feels laid back and inviting. It's been described as a bohemian style groove that sounds a bit jazzy, funky or almost R&B at times. The lyrics speak of love, but also touch on serious topics like homelessness, mental illness and addiction. Colorado Daily writes, 'With undeniable comparisons to Jack Johnson, John Mayer, and even some old songs of The Shins, this album is incredibly listener-friendly.' The opening track 'Photo Opportunity' is reminiscent of vintage Steely Dan with a jazzy reggae-rock, rhythm and blues blend feel to it. 'Insomniac Special' sets you at 3 a.m. in Paris in a dark smoky basement poetry club, and features sax courtesy of guest musician Frank Ewing from another Philly rock band Downtown Harvest. "Sunrise" is a jazzy number with a slinky walking bass line performed by Yos DiAngelo. 'Repeats in Her Head' highlights the fine drum groove laid on the album by Jon Wood of the instrumental jazz fusion group Grimace Federation. 'Not the Reason' is an indie rock tune in the ballpark of The Shins. This track was featured on the Souls of Poor Folk homeless benefit compilation CD (also available on CD Baby.) The second half of the album leads you through a Jamiroquai style danceable tune 'Whitest Sands' laden with Brendan's guitar leads and vocal harmonies, and into a funky wah guitar tune in 'Backpack' that feels like you're riding along on a bumpy subway train covered in spray paint propaganda. It shifts gears to singer songwriter style acoustic songs in 'Stop and Go' and 'Something New' that feature Jeffrey James Harvey adding hand percussion to the sparse mix. Brendan's intimate vocal style on these acoustic songs is reminiscent of Jack Johnson, John Mayer, or Elliott Smith. The album finishes with a heartfelt love song in 'Three Words'. Take a chance on a new artist and pick up this CD. Pop it in, put it on repeat play and enjoy. ******************************************************** Album is professionally glass master pressed (replicated, not CD-R duplication) for optimum quality and will arrive in a shrink wrapped eco-friendly high gloss Digipak CD case that uses 63% less plastic than a jewel case.
