Emotional - Ahh ... The Name Is Emotional, Baby! (LP)

from 10.00

Emotional is the spiritual manifestation of songwriter, singer, director, and Death Records founder Brian Wakefield. Wakefield, a San Jose native, has been a humble part of the San Francisco music community since the early ‘00s, working with various bands, but most notably the “dream-pop quartet” Melted Toys. Emotional was initially embarked upon as an experimental side pop-project to Melted Toys—it now serves as the signature vessel for Wakefield’s personal songwriting.
 

Ahh…The Name's Emotional, Baby! arrives as a multi-label effort that will awaken a passionate surrender of humility and guilty pleasure. Following his heroes Kate Bush, Gram Parsons, and The Smashing Pumpkins, Wakefield casts a spell of irresistible tangy guitar reverb, bending synths, and candid melodies. It is a pop record, it is a true story, and it is a testament to the modern state of feelings. Written and recorded over the course of two-years with producer Ole Haarstad (Melted Toys), multi-instrumentalist Emmet Moskowitz, a.k.a., “Muzzy” (Froogy’s Groovies), and mastered by Patrick Haight (Spot-On Sound), the LP features guest appearances by vocalist Ryan Grubbs (Tiaras, Ganglians) and guitarist Adam Finken (Male Gaze, Tiaras, Blasted Canyons). It is the stoney memory of that impossible psychic love that shared an appreciation of Taco Bell. It is the tale of an artist who boldly says, “It’s okay to be emotional.”
