The Skygreen Leopards release Gorgeous Johnny

securedownloadThe Skygreen Leopards new album Gorgeous Johnny, has been part of my morning church service as of late, acclimating me to the day with thirteen tracks of fragrant chime, airy vocals, and mid-tempo swagger. Better to take this one on as a whole, though you ipoders can find solace in the hazy folk-pop of “Jehovah will never come,” and its talk of making love to a ‘Jehovah’s Witness girl in the shade.’ Elsewhere, the title track has a subdued garage vibe that may have you thinking of The Velvets and a slowed down “Oh! Sweet Nuthin’.” Coming across like scattered rays of sun peaking through an overcast morning, Gorgeous Johnny will have you riding off in passing triumph.
