Kris Kelly “Birthplace”

“Birthplace” is such a ridiculously brazen throwback to the old 70’s singer-songwriter AM radio vibe and is so utterly earnest in it’s pursuit of that feeling that if you weren’t told it was a new song you’d have every reason to believe it was born back then. It sounds like a cross between Nilsson (“The Moonbeam Song” specifically), and magnificent cult troubadour Jimmie Spheeris, is about wandering and realizing, is completely tuneful and sweet and as such is completely out of step with today’s pop in the best possible way. It just plain shines.
