Dave's True Story - Unauthorized (Multi-Channel Surround)
Unauthorized features thirteen hip, witty tracks with Dave's True Story's trademark toe-tapping swing. While the style may be considered retro, the subject matter is certainly contemporary: "Dear Miss Lucy" is a wry appeal to a husband-stealing S&M mistress, and "Lilly 110-140" is a samba--tinged homage to Prozac. Songs like "Won Gon Ju" the story of a Chinese Jewish man and "Florida Time" a sultry ballad ostensibly penned in a jail cell are off-kilter and cynical treats. And, like all Dave's true stories, there are paeans to love lost ("When Kafka Was The Rage"), love gone wrong ("Misery"), and love that hurts so good ("Far Worse Off").
Kelly Flint and David Cantor, vocalist and guitarist of Dave's True Story respectively, describe their music as "beat-lounge." Since meeting more than ten years ago through New York City's network of songwriters, Flint's peaches-and-Cointreau voice and Cantor's sharp-yet-loose arrangements have proven themselves to be perfect complements to each other.
Recorded in the signature 96kHz/24bit Chesky sound, Unauthorized is sure to become one of the favorites in your SACD-player as you soak in the tight accompaniment and wit-doused lyrics of this duo.
