Michael Zapruder: Dragon Chinese Cocktail Horoscope

Michael Zapruder defies pigeon-holing. This San Francisco singer-songwriter can emulate Nick Drake in his Bryter Layter phase in Ads for Feelings, do a convincing Thom Yorke whine and channel the lyricism of Leonard Cohen (White Raven Sails).

Dragon Chinese Cocktail Horoscope is a folk record when you strip away all the other layers - Zapruder does it him self on Harbor Saints. All his songs have a solid core and you can't go wrong with that. He has a talent to build an oeuvre that will get him in the pantheon of musician's musicians. This is an album like a glass house - you can see it all, but you will have a hard time trying to duplicate it.
