“In the twinkling star night you were there”
Creaturefeature showcases the newest sounds from Dennis's mind! Joined by Teddy Freese and Andy Bartel of The Jigsaw Seen, Paul Rieger and Bob Tiefenwerth of United States Of Existence and Chuck Mancillas of Drool Brothers.
"It's been good relief that the cessation of LA's consistently great The Jigsaw Seen (1988-2017) hasn't deprived us of their lead singer-or, as this EP reminds, the charming yet grabbing '60's- esque rock/pop he/they made so well. Finally following up his 2020 debut, The Book Of Strongman (my #20 pick #87) apart from some singles, these 5 songs are an even better recorded/written distillation of his BeeGees/Syd Barrett/Brian Wilson melodic jones abetted by a similar appealing whimsey-not unlike the exalted apices of the post The Big Express XTC/Dukes Of Stratosphear. While the piano-enhanced "Creatures Of Love" is an obvious hit from another, better world, it's the more prickly, fab guitar rock/psych-ish stand-out "The Greatest Moment In History" (kudos) and the baroque Kinks-ian magnetism of "The Monuments" (extra points for topicality too) that replicates Davison's enduring claim as one of the most underrated singer/tunesmiths in this hear land-and a home recording solo engine that could!"
