Stephen Lawrenson – Obscuriosity (2013)

Posted by on January 14, 2013 with No Commentsas

STEPHStephen makes quite a pop splash here on his 2013 Kool Kat debut! And to drive home this point, the crack “Pop Squad” of Kool Kat insiders/contributors cheerfully chime in! “Playing every note on the record, he proudly wears his pop influences on his sleeve. Tell me ‘Small White House” wouldn’t pass for a Brian Wilson-penned song. His inner Jeff Lynne pops up on both ‘Pale Yellow’ and the 12-string laced ‘Words To Say’.” – Count Keef “It’s intelligent, well written, and completely catchy. Awesome, just awesome power pop, with loads of great hooks, melodies and harmonies. It rocks. It moves you. A masterful malange of 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s guitar rock mixed and matched with no concern for the namecheck. That’s how good this is. Five stars isn’t enough. Six, maybe!” – MR Gomez “What do you think would happen if you threw The Goldbergs, The Beatles, Three Hour Tour, Teenage Fanclub (in their fuzzy period), Big Star, The Posies (circa ‘Frosting On The Beater’), ‘Pet Sounds’ period Brian Wilson, and the Electric Light Orchestra into a giant pop blender? You’d get Stephen Lawrenson, that’s what!”

In addition to his powerful voice, he was also an accomplished harmonica player.

We have also included 15 bonus tracks (gathering a variety of those great sides he recorded between 1951 and 1960), making this the definitive edition of Wolf’s Blues masterpiece.
