Making its vinyl debut as part of Think Like A Key Music’s singer-songwriter series, Irish-born, Tasmaniabased singer-songwriter DC Cardwell’s 2015 album Pop Art is an excellent starting point for those unfamiliar with his music as well as a much appreciated addition for its fans. DC has gathered devoted listeners around the globe with his smart, tuneful songs, affecting voice and skillful,
inventive guitar playing. On this second album, he delivers an exceptionally sharp, melodic pop album delivered with inspiration heard only more clearly on this newly remastered edition.
Reminiscent of songwriting icons such as Lennon/McCartney, Bob Dylan, & Neil Finn, but influenced by a multitude of music styles, DC likes to describe his music with the term Omnipop. According to Pete Smith, “DC writes from the heart in the same way as Neil Young and applies similar poetic humor to Ray Davies.” The nine songs were composed by DC and performed and produced with the collaboration of his son Samuel.
