Friday Thing: Kurt Baker - Play It Cool

Here's a Thing that sounds very MIAT. Kurt Baker was a founding member of Portland, ME's The Leftovers so I just knew I was going to like his new solo album.

Not departing from his established style too drastically, Play It Cool is essentially a bunch of simple, incredibly easy to listen to pop songs and a perfect soundtrack to the weekend. The arrangements blitz up tight driving guitars with subtle synth lines; you'd be forgiven for thinking the record was produced by Wyatt Funderbunk (because it actually was).

Bounce on over to Kurt Baker's bandcamp to grab the download, or get the CD here.
