Rhapsody Originals EP (EP, Exclusive)
Released: Jun 2008
Most Rhapsody Originals sessions are fairly intimate affairs, offering a chance to hear an artist's singles stripped nude. This is hardly the case with Thriving Ivory, whose session somehow manages to be in all ways more: more reverb, more drama, more choked-up, over-the-top affectation from well-gelled frontman Clayton Stroope. Of this sampler of blockbusters, "Angels on the Moon" and "Hey Lady" (preceded by some sensitive banter about breakups) are the ones best designed to tug at the heartstrings.
