Sandro Perri “Tiny Mirrors”

Previously known as Polmo Polpo (doing more electronically-derived work), as well as being an associate of Great Lake Swimmers, Eric Chenaux, Adam Marshall, Andre Ethier, Sawako, Detective Kalita/The Michael Parks, Andy Swan, Barzin, The Singing Saws, and Tinkertoy, Toronto-based Sandro Perri offers a lopsided folk/pop approach here, with his vocals, guitar, and percussion sometimes joined by a nice mix of brass, reeds, strings, and percussion. The singing is at times quite melodic, and he does a pretty earnest version of Fred Neil’s “Everybody’s Talkin'”, but it’s not quite pure folk…there’s a touch of the tropics here, and the charming euphonium adds a sort of club-footed jazz element. The last track is an instrumental.
