Daniel Bonespur is a trip without ever sounding like anything but a sweetheart. A pitch-perfect voice with a wry perspective and fanciful sense of storytelling that builds on that of The Magnetic Fields’ Stephen Merritt. Mr. Bonespur often tours solo, so it’s a treat to hear him accompanied on this track by a sympathetic band and spacious synthesizers. What the words mean I have no idea, but I like them.
“Fubby” was co-written with my Adam Werven of the bedroom prog-pop act, Larry Wish.
