Smoke And Mirrors

Smoke And Mirrors by Brett Dennen
Released: Oct 2013
Label: F-Stop Records
With the global success of 2008's Hope for the Hopeless and 2011's Loverboy, Brett Dennen proved he's a force to be reckoned with when it comes to singer-songwriter fare in the Jason Mraz/Jack Johnson vein. Not only does Smoke and Mirrors build on this momentum, it's also his most confident full-length to date. On highlights "Only Want You" and "Don't Mess With Karma," Dennen fully integrates acoustic folk-pop and funky, reggae-flavored beats (some of which are programmed). Meanwhile, "When We Were Young" shows off his knack for churning out peppy, catchy, indie-flavored rock 'n' roll.
