Sean Nicholas Savage

Spread Free Like a Butterfly (Arbutus)

The more I listen to this guy, the more it perplexes me as to what might be going through his head. His lyrics belie the fact that he's in his early 20s, or even of this era, and the music feels influenced by everything from Simon & Garfunkel to Disney soundtracks to The Magnetic Fields. His live show and some of the record is backed by a pair of steampunk-y imitation twins, yodelling along to Savage's creepy stalkerish love songs that hover somewhere between folk and happy cartoon endings. Bizarre, and worth checking out.
