David Vandervelde – Shadow Sides (2014)

Starting with 2007’s brilliant The Moonstation House Band, singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist David Vandervelde began a slow-burning career, offering the world a look at his bounding and hook-heavy music, melodic but swaggering indie rock styled heavily after the thick riffs of T. Rex and the wanton weirdness of Bowie. A follow-up album came the next year but then things got quieter on the Vandervelde front. Over the next six years, multiple moves, the sudden death of long-time friend and collaborator (and former Wilco member) Jay Bennett, and the dissolution of his marriage all kept Vandervelde busy, not to mention sitting in with other acts and doing production work on other artists’ recordings.
