ARTIST / BAND: BABY DAYLINER
SONG (MP3): AT LEAST
ALBUM: Critics Pass Away
FILE UNDER: Pop / Progressive / Soul
INFO: Brooklyn's Baby Dayliner is upbeat, joyous, earnest, and romantic, all at once. He combines Leonard Cohen's songcraft, the electronic pulse of New Order, and the jiggy performance style of Al Green. He's also been compared to Serge Gainsbourg, David Bowie, James Brown, Tom Jones, The Smiths, Daft Punk, and Stephin Merritt's Magnetic Fields -- influences which he gratefully cites alongside the classical and jazz of his formal musical training, and the street sounds he absorbed while growing up in New York City.
Imagine wooshing and plinging synths, trip-the-light fantastic pianos, catchy beats, highly literate lyrics, and the low tones of one man's melodic voice. We're calling him a 21st century Frank Sinatra.
