I got an e-mail from a guy named Daniel (can I call you Dan?), telling me about his band, Filbert, and their soon-to-debut “Central Valley Commute”. I thought, sounds solid! How could I pass up a band with the name Filbert? Anyway, upon clicking the attached links, I discovered this. I like the folk/popish fusion, and I’m loving the lyrics! If I had to compare Filbert to other musicians, I’d say they fall somewhere between the Dodos and Matt and Kim perhaps. But I’m not a huge fan of generalizing, so maybe they just sound like Filbert. Either way, I like these guys!
So thank you, Dan from Filbert, for some fresh music. I’m adding it to my Brownees playlist now.
