Slacker jangle-pop is where it’s at with LOU DAVIES. And we should all join in with the chorus, and follow. ‘The Smartest Monkey’ is the culmination of millions of years in the evolution of man. This man. You. Us. The celebrations don’t stop with the peace treaties within our Homoapien tendencies. But it is molded and revived and heightened for awareness.
Lou’s guitar work and sensibilities is fascinating and accessible.
Lou’s harmonies are delectable.
And his songwriting and lyrics demonstrate some fun attributes to his personality and focus for what he does. Put that all together on a layer of harmonies on this song, and bam – it’s like drizzled honey on vanilla ice cream.
“BIG BIG thank you’s to Tyler Daglish and Ruby Ruby Layla Meredith for playing on it and to all round hot boy Edward Lloyd Braun for not only mixing & producing the track but also providing an acute anti-solo on it.”
