The new Davenports record–Why the Great Gallop?–is finally here! Slant magazine calls it “a terrific, well-performed power pop record,” and that’s ok by us.
What separates Brooklyn-based quartet the Davenports from other power-pop acts like Jimmy Eat World and Guster is their attention to the most minute details of day-to-day drudgery. On the band’s third album, Why the Great Gallop?, frontman and principal songwriter Scott Klass once again proves himself capable of taking seemingly trivial concerns and spinning them into quirky, cockeyed narratives.
The record release party is next week. Come!
