June 30, 2016 Leave a comment
Today’s song kicks off a delightful pop partnership. Musicians Teddy Thompson and Kelly Jones struck up a friendship built on their shared love of classic pop-country music, especially the short bursts of joy and passion that filled the airwaves in the late 50s through mid 60s. They sang together at a few events and decided to record an album. The result, Little Windows, is a flawless half hour of infectious, emotive music.
The disc opens with one of its strongest moments, Never Knew You Loved Me Too. The singers launch the track with an a cappella recitation of the title, a perfect blast of pop joy. It’s a deceptively simple friends-finding-love song, with smart playing and gorgeous harmonies. Thompson and Jones convey the wonderful surprise of two people discovering that they share deeper feelings, making the emotion clear with every note.
Enjoy this delightful song today.
