From the shangri-la of the valley of song, a classic yet current piece in the folk vein, Sean Nicholas Savage casts down his final work in a three release year (Won Ton Jaz, Trippple Midnight Karma). Flamingo plays at his calmest and most confident tempo; classic titles from a young singer-songwriter, driven to maturity by over experience. On the cassette, the old soul sings and dances (eyes closed) from his fatigued mind to yours. Opening with the reflective, tropical and topical “Days Go By”, Savage is lyrically uncertain about everything but the want for his lover and her wanting him. In a world of kissing, eyes, and heart songs, “Chin Chin” celebrates the every morning electric chin kiss – perhaps for the first time in music history! In “My Chances”, Savage easily compares the thrill and fear of new romance with life’s fleeting opportunities – insisting that he’s stealing his chances back, since they were his all along. With intimate singing, minimal drum rhythms and beautiful harmonies throughout; Flamingo is a folk album in spirit, with its relaxed, lyrically driven music. The perfect company for a thoughtful winter walk or an out the window cigarette break.
