8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 20 December 2011
Velvet Davenport's experimental pop sounds have somehow passed me by but here they are with thier third release for Moon Glyph. Spear-headed by chief songwriter Parker Sprout, Velvet Davenport have produced their most ambitious and daring collection to date featuring more of everything! More players, more tunes, more more more. Anchored around Parker Sprout's hectic organ skills and classic psych-pop vocal delivery 'Warmy Girls' sounds much like classic Kinks/Beatles/Beach Boys yet stripped to it's bare essentials. 'Warmy Girls' is very much a lo-fi bedroom record, most likely recorded on a four track with little or no fuss involved. This inevitably makes for spontaneous and honest music rich in character and charm. For some reason it reminds me of Guided By Voices in it's successful delivery of pop music without all the unnecessary frills and inflated production budgets. They ain't as rocking as GBV though. More like GBV's studious little brother who doesn't drink for a living.
