Jordan Galland: Search Party

NYC singer and movie maker Jordan Galland is a stylish guy. On his previous album Airbrush he took aim at (and hit) the posers, with a sense of humor softening the blow. His new one Search Party is a bit darker.

Galland kept the orchestrated pop that is peddled by Jarvis Cocker and Spottiswoode & His Enemies. He feels sorry for the people he sings about (Paper Snowflake, Football & Stippers) - they are the beautiful losers that were immortalized in the Leonard Cohen novel. As a film maker he knows how to conjure up images. Don a pair of headphones and his characters come alive in your mind's eye.
