Sweet Disarray - CAPITOL
FILTER Grade: 82%
By Laura Studarus on March 12, 2014
Dan Croll comes out of the gate on his debut album Sweet Disarray with a sound that suggests Paul McCartney with a taste for Afro-pop, rock, electronics and the occasional grand-sweeping, Paul Simon–style folk gesture. (It should come as no surprise that Macca has endorsed the singer/songwriter.) In all, Croll performs a remarkable juggling act that never crosses over into clever-for-clever’s-sake. A rare debut, as well crafted as it is likeable.
