(2016) Brett Dennen — Por Favor Magazine: Since making his launch in 2004, Brett Dennen‘s pleasant people-pop has earned him a trustworthy following and placed him among some of the prior decade’s more apparent modern pop troubadours, from Jason Mraz to Ray LaMontagne. While he hasn’t quite enjoyed the triumph of those acts, it’s certainly not for need of trying. His richness of hooky melodies and wool-gathering acoustic musings has been spread out over five thriving releases and his almost John Denver-like emanation of seriousness gives him an approachable allure. On Por Favor, the singer’s sixth energy, he strips his music down to the barest essentials to fabricate what is definitively his most defenceless and penetrating album. Admittedly drawn unsatisfying rare by a relationship on the rocks, blood discommode, and a fettle the living daylights, this is a Dennen we’ve never heard, with a noticeably frayed disposition and a searching focus. The climate of heightened sensitiveness and the minimalist making from Nashville’s Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) gives Por Favor more of an inborn and ceaseless climate than any of Dennen’s old exertion, and his quavering aged direction has never sounded so appropriate to the resources. But even in his darkest hours, Dennen’s casual trend and bring demeanor manage him come off like a fallen optimist trying to retune his antenna sunward. Fall On tones of calypso and reggae color tracks like “What’s the Secret?” and “Stand Up for It,” and the tempo assort of drummer Chris Powell and bassist Brian Allen bespeckle the tunes with a sizeable, off-the-cuff vibe. On his sunnier moments, Dennen evokes the unconnected, rootsy vibe of American Dream-era Thankful Extinguished, and there’s even a relevance to Jerry Garcia on the hushed standout “Strawberry Road.” Recorded in just a team a few of weeks at Cobb’s all-analog Nashville studio, the performances are unconnected and explicit, with bind boo padding the gaps between chords on quieter tunes like “Where We Fist Off” and the bittersweet closer “I’ll Be on Your Side.” As both a novelist and a choirboy, Dennen has never sounded so rickety and unpolished and it’s a immaculate fit for this grotesque assort of songs.
