I don't know much about this dude aside from that he sounds a lot like a cross between Marc Bolan and David Bowie, he recorded this record over a two year period at Jay Bennett's (Wilco) Clubhouse and he writes pretty good songs. I'm not even a big fan of Bowie (I like it when he covered The Velvet Underground), but I'll pretend I am if it means I'm going to get laid because of it. I haven't tested my theory out yet but I'd be willing to lay down whatever money I do have on that chicks will dig this David Vandervelde record if you put it on when you're trying to get down. Lemme know if it works kids. Anyone seen this cat live?
