Review

This is a strange little homemade CD from Mr. Sean Padilla's cool recording label. Tangerine specializes in slice of life kind of singer-songwriter stuff that expands (mightily) on the mumbling-guy-with-acoustic-guitar syndrome and ventures into more progressive music territory, although definitely keeping hold of the hometaper charm and mystique. Alpine Monkey is along those lines as well, but differs from Sean's stuff too. The artist here has one of those off-key vocal styles that's difficult at first, but somehow fits with the other strangeness going. What I like are how the songs are all different and how the monkey uses unusual sounds in a sing-songy way. Cool find. -- Bryan Baker
