Wyatt Funderburk - Novel And Profane (2013) Flac

Wyatt Funderburk is a Nashville musician, songwriter and producer. He’s been behind some of the best power pop of the past few years, producing and mixing for The Wellingtons, The Connection and Kurt Baker most recently. He’s also worked with Bowling For Soup, Linus of Hollywood and Silver Sun. But now Wyatt is on the other side of of the mixing booth crafting his first big solo album.
It’s pretty clear Wyatt has a knack for catchy hook-filled melodies and solid musicianship. Starting with the phrase “How was Your Summer?” we go on a melodic thrill ride with the song “Summer.” Next, “You Know What To Do” is a plea to girl to leave an abusive relationship, a mid-tempo slice of genius that recalls Roger Manning Jr. Each song is done with relatively restrained instrumentation and production, so the songwriting can stand out. Similar to Mike Viola or Adam Schlesinger, Wyatt twists those minor chords in each track, along with a ray of hope in each lyric. The lovely country beat and steel lap on “Feeling Good Tonight” is a welcome shift in tone, the epic “Nights Like This” gets to the heart of the album’s theme, and “Love Will Lead the Way” charms with its Tom Pettyesque rhythm and simple message.
Although I felt “Try To Be” really deserved a lush multi-layered treatment, each track is a gem and it easily gets a nod for my top ten of 2013 list. (powerpopaholic)

The album was released in 2013. As far i know only as digital download.
Wyatt Funderburk is a really great songwriter and musician in pop, power pop style. But i must admit i just know the efforts with Second Saturday (both albums are top notch power pop) and this marvelous album. I highly recommend this guy. Grab it if you like it. I purchased the album at Bandcamp (pay what  you want) and found the artwork all over the internet. If you like what you hear please support the artist and purchase his music. His works are really worth the money.
Have fun
