Album artwork for The Pet Parade by Fruit Bats

The latest from the prolific Eric D. Johnson is a gorgeously gauzy collection of folk / pop earworms indebted as much to the jangle of Byrds & Kinks, as it is the slick, troubled yacht rock of the 80s. Not quite Sunshine Pop, but more like "Overcast Pop". Johnson (who has played in The Shins, composed film scores & most recently, earned two Grammy nominations with his other band Bonny Light Horseman) recorded the album remotely with BLH bandmate Josh Kaufman (also of Muzz & worked on Taylor's Swift's latest record). Also featured are collaborators from acts as vast as Califone, Iron & Wine, Fleet Foxes, The Walkmen & more.
