New music from Good Looking Son
Hello again y'all, insane response to the Sweeping Promises announcement last week! Over half the color vinyl is spoken for if that's your thing. Today we've got a new album from Cincinnati's own Good Looking Son to announce! If you've followed Keith through the Cowboys or the debut GLS EP we released a couple years back, you'll know he's one of the most talented and prolific songwriters on the label these days. Excited to finally announce this one and share the lead single, "Long Form Girlfriend", with you.
The all-encompassing bid to mid-thirties singledom, sung from that lonesome, soulful heart of Good Looking Son is here to awaken 2023. Following 2021's debut 'Fantasy Weekend' EP - the Cincinnati project anchored by Keith Harman (the Cowboys) on vocals + piano returns in roaring fashion with ten new originals, finished off with a nostalgic rendition of a Bee Gees classic. Jerome Westerkamp's Checkered Flag Studios are once again the perfect basement analog backdrop for a caterwauling trip into blurry sixties-esque melodies, baroque tongue-in-cheek pop dashes, and liquored flurries of vocal brilliance that blossom across 'Confirmed Bachelor'. The musicianship of the Queen City shines through with Westerkamp, joined by fellow Vacation (and Tweens) member John Clooney, and Andrew Jody (Barrence Whitfield & the Savages, Long Gones) contributing to the dynamism of tracks like "Long Form Girlfriend" and "Kathy's Coming". There's a certain twisted middle-American pop thing that Good Looking Son clearly bend towards the future. The next level...who knows? But enough to at least nod that discerning ear forward while jangling keys drive the shot clock past double zero, that's for sure. GLS leave this thing covered in glitter and great songwriting - castaways afloat in a vessel navigating one boozy mess of dirty water and sunshine pop.
