Brad Senne

Add Date: April 27

Artist: Brad Senne

Album: Aerial Views

Label: Grainbelt

Genre: Folk, acoustic

Comments: Almost too-heartfelt acoustic ballads from Minnesota's Brad Senne, this former hardcore punk-rocker is well in touch with his sensitive side as he gives us Bonnie "Prince" Billy-style slow brooders on Aerial Views. Iron and Wine/Damien Rice listeners will find something really enjoyable on here. Tracks like "Road Trip" and "Sing & Dance" are slow and somber, but deftly executed and perfect for those rainy Spring Term afternoons. One of the best singer songwriters to grace our playlist in a long time. (That is saying a lot, given the dirty connotation of the "singer songwriter" brand.)
