"If you enjoyed the light pop touch of The Simple Carnival then there is a very good chance you'll like Scott Brookman. Scott writes sweet melodic piano pop in the tradition of the 60's and 70's with a Tin Pan Alley touch. The title track is an intro to "This Little Samba" a bossa nova beat driven tune that recalls those light Burt Bacharach songs with a wry humor about a wandering mojo. Todd Rundgren fans will surely appreciate the bouncy "The First Assault Upon My Day" which sounds like it fell off of Something/Anything. Scott's diverse influences are both immediate and enjoyable. The wonderful "Real Estate" shows off some excellent arrangements that recall mid 70's McCartney with true affection. Other highlights include "Getting Involved" with subtle harmonies blended in the chorus and the very Steely Dan-ish "Home School," with some fancy keyboard work. The lyrics are also very emotional stories that fans of Andrew Gold and Randy Newman will gravitate to as well. "Lemon Lane" is a warm and fuzzy pop gem that has a solid hook and even a kazoo solo at the midpoint. Even with the hilarious ending song "Start the Day" you can't help think of Brain Wilson in the sandbox making up the words as he goes along. The album starts and ends with the crackle of record vinyl and if you ever owned a record collection, this one would be a welcome addition (on CD)." ---Aaron Kupferberg in Powerpopaholic blog
« A song for you a song for me » réussit le mariage audacieux de la pop et de la bossa ; un assortiment sucré agrémenté d’une pointe de rock ; le tout assaisonné de jazz entrainant. Derrière la voix feutrée de Scott et ses arrangements soignés, ces 14 pistes mêlant humour et rêverie nous transportent dans les années 60’s. En fermant les yeux, on s’imagine dans un bac à sable faisant des châteaux aux cotés de Brian Wilson, Harry Nilsson ou Mick Brown (The Left Banke).
Ce côté enfantin et léger s’estompe bien vite au fur et à mesure que les guitares enjouées, piano, kazoo ou xylophone déploient leurs arpèges hauts en couleurs autour de mélodies subtiles et pleines de fantaisie se détachant de ses influences pour nous enchanter de ces compositions indie pop à la fois pétillantes et authentiques comme le démontre les merveilleux « real estate » , « Lemon Lame » ou « the first assault upon my day».
