The Furious Seasons’ David Steinhart remains a meticulous model of constancy. With almost 20 albums to his credit over the last three decades, this constant fixture in the L.A. pop scene is once again, working on a new release. The followup to My Analog Face is 18 songs that are expected to have a more live and relaxed feel due to the bands extensive experience playing live. The project is slated to be done in early 2014 with a release sometime that year. Steinhart explains about the new album…
“There’s a broader range of styles on the upcoming album. There are and will always be mid-tempo Jimmy Webb type songs with varying degrees of irony on our albums but this album also has more straight up country inspired drinking songs, a song that mixes a Dylan style vocal with a calypso beat and a flute solo and a full on Ska song.”
Steinhart writes and sings warm, literate, sober, preoccupied folk pop, always well-crafted, and full of small, conspicuous, workmanlike extras (pacific strings, mellotron, piano, guitar tweets, a southern blues harmonica), and an aptitude for unpretentious, poppy hooks that’s never deserted him these many years.
The Furious Seasons create their own music with orchestral strings as part of their sound, taking its cue from earlier bands like The Left Banke, Electric Light Orchestra and even Poi Dog Pondering. And just like these previous bands, The Furious Seasons’ sound stands out from the rest of the music industry because of the beauty that can be found in the music from the band.
