Doveman: Honey

 
Well... take early Tom Waits circa Closing Time and The Heart of Saturday Night, Nick Cave's atmospheric keyboard-ripe masterpieces, and a dash of Iron & Wine's gauzy vocals (imagine I & W's, Sam Beam, with a wider range and more forceful delivery), this is Doveman on the song, "Honey". Some tinkling percussion meets the contrast of a banjo's warm friendly twang and the cool ivory plinking of piano to carry a lovely, lovely melody decorated with silver trinkets. Tasteful baubles draped around throat, dangling from ears, and tugging at wrist; a melody which shows just enough skin to spark the imagination. It's the 'Pink Moon album Nick Drake' with an American whisper and technicolor vista supplanting Drake's British greys, blacks, and whites... listen...
