I had never heard of Dave Depper before this week, but I’m glad to make his musical acquantance via a new cover of Air’s Moon Safari album.
After hearing the announcement of his upcoming album via Turntable Kitchen (which I referred to as “seemingly abandoned” less than a month ago), I checked out his back catalog. Although he plays keyboards in Death Cab For Cutie, you would be hard to find the connection in most of his music.1 The track I’ve selected to share, “Lonely With You,” is a modern R&B indie slow jam with… pedal steel. The novelty gives me a dopamine rush.
With the obvious exception of the vocals on some of the tracks, which have a very Gibbstack vibe. ↩︎
