M ROSS PERKINS – M Ross Perkins (SofaBurn Records)

The debut album by M Ross Perkins is a true solo effort, being written, recorded, played and produced by Perkins. The songs are firmly based in classic 60’s pop and 70’s rock, and yet my first thought on hearing ‘Humboldt County Green’ was indie faves Midlake, so they’re not just retro copies. Despite the songs being a mixture of different styles, the album is a coherent listen, and bodes well for the next one.
