I’ve been waiting for Velvet Davenport to arrive in Brooklyn for months now. And now, the band that lives in a city with lots of snow, is here when there is lots of unlikely snow. Will I make it to Ridgewood tonight for the Silent Barn show? I’m gonna try!
Velvet Davenport make 60s inspired, dare I say, psychedelic, music. Their songs are accented with Yardbirds-like keyboard flourishes and shifty drums. “Drop,” below is especially good for this moment right now, you’ll feel like you’re lost in a tunnel of white. (Looking out your window will help the affect).
Bird sounds, shakers, monotone vocals coupled with yelps; expect all of that tonight.
