REVIEWS:

This is a sweet and simple confection that punches above its short minute count on the strength of its songwriting, production and musicality. Opening with ‘Tell Me Why’, you could be fooled into thinking you’re getting a Neil Young cover, instead of which there’s a McCartneyesque ditty complete with whistling and some gorgeous harmonies and choruses.

Sweet! Second track ‘Say Hello Wave Goodbye’ again isn’t a cover of a better-known track and again is no disappointment. A muscular acoustic track with subtle arrangement and simple lyricism. All acoustic but finely balanced as the vocals sit on the hint of accordion. ‘Mistake to Make’ again sounds like a lot of Beatles has been listened to in the songwriting process: there’s ‘Taxman’ here as well as ‘Daytripper’. It’s a little less polished than the previous tracks but still cuts a fair swathe through most of the things that pass across this desk.

‘Me and the Bean’ is the final track on the EP and hints at a catalogue that will grow. This is different and feels like a progression. Gently strummed guitar, jazzy inflexions. Is that a cello? Harmonies float in and out. This is far more thoughtful and original, leaving the listener wanting to hear more as the steel guitar wafts him away on a dream. Lovely.

"Wood Hitch are Brady Harris and Rose Shawhan, an LA based duo who make Americana-Folk-Pop as showcased on their new eponymous debut EP. Brady plays the music, both trade vocals, and the sound is dreamy and timeless – could have been recorded this year (as it was) or fifty years ago. ‘Gentle Reminder‘ epitomises that timeless feeling – on the surface it’s a nostalgic love song, but listen a little deeper and it reveals itself as a heartbreaker – where everyday things trigger memories that bring the world to a jarring halt with thoughts that are inescapable “Gentle reminder / A piece of the past / You always find me / No matter where I’m at."

BIO From ALLMUSIC GUIDE:

Former frontman for the Replacements-inspired Solid Goldsteins, Brady Harris' solo career has diverged from his previous work into a sound altogether more indicative of his Texas roots. Bearing considerable vocal resemblance to John Lennon, Harris crafts moody country-rock with a hard pop edge. Strongly melodic with a confident wit, he combines well-traveled themes with stoic romanticism. Having paid his dues as a starving artist, busking on the streets of Paris and London, Harris found himself in Los Angeles recording one album with his former bandmates before releasing his solo debut in 1997. That album, Next Door to Nowhere, received favorable reviews and was followed by considerable media attention at 1999's NXNW music conference. 1999's Good Luck Stranger was met with near unanimous critical approval, and Harris went on to tour Europe in late 2000. He spent the next two years touring the states where he racked up numerous awards, including $5,000 from the Pontiac Vibe Car Commercial Contest, which helped him finance 2003's highly anticipated Lone Star. —Matt Fink, All Music Guide (www.allmusic.com)

* * * * *
More evidence that it's what's lurking beneath the radar that's really important, Brady Harris - following the familiar career trajectory of starving busker (in London and Paris), accidental recordings, critical acclaim (not the least of which came at the NxNW conference in '99) impressive underground success ($5000 from MP3.com) and still no major label deal - has just released his third album, recorded at home with the assistance of a $500 Shure microphone he won for his roots-grass version of Motorhead's 'Ace Of Spades'. Intrigued? Good, for mere words can never do him justice. Ignore, then, the fact that Harris' voice bears comparisons with John Lennon; ignore the fact that he creates a beguiling brand of alt. power country pop, something like Peter Bruntnell massaging Big Star; ignore the fact that Harris can take on Joe Pernice in his own back yard and win. Ignore these words, let your ears do the judging, and you're left wondering where this California-dwelling Texan has been hiding all your life. -Michael Ornadet, LOGO-MAGAZINE (UK)

REVIEWS:

AMERICANA-UK:
(8/10 Stars)
Opening with the Devoesque ‘Let’s Live’ which is all new wave rhythms and hand claps with catchy choruses, you think you have a handle on The Brady Harris band and their new platter ‘NOHO Calling’ (that’s North Hollywood to you and me!) But the next track ‘Raise a Glass’ is pure barrelhouse boozer blues of the soft country lament variety, all crisp shuffle snare and sweet guitar and piano solos . It could be 1am and the bourbon has run out without it being messy.

‘Better Late Than Never’ switches again – a somewhat restrained driving song highlighting some tasty instrumental breaks. With ‘Our Lips Are Sealed’ we perhaps return to a template that is probably close to understanding the Brady Harris mindset a brilliant cover that retains the underlying menace of the song whilst pouring it through the filter of bluesy tight guitars and a great lead break where the band are clearly enjoying themselves.

‘The Noho Sound’ changes everything! Full of local acronyms and places in the lyrics, the music is a soft harmony driven doo-wop sitting on a crystal clear jazz guitar. Beautiful and definitely subversive.

And so it goes, this album unfolds further with each listen and it is a journey I highly recommend. There is a whole but each of the parts however short and succinct is different and equally attention-grabbing, right up to the brooding instrumental closer of ‘Battle of Swankershim’. Recommended.

POWERPOPAHOLIC:
(7/10 stars)
Texas-bred, Los Angeles based Brady Harris delivered this follow up to his 2016 album NoHo Confidential. Brady has laid back, slightly lounge lizard approach to rock here. “Let’s Live” has a bouncing bass line that helps guide the melody and the boozy toast “Raise A Glass” uses a county styled shuffle and subtle pedal steel guitar.

The impressive “Better Late Than Never” is a catchy standout with a Beatlesque approach. And a slowed down cover of The Go-Go’s “Our Lips Are Sealed” is an interesting addition. The Beach Boys-styled backing harmonies on “The Noho Sound” lends some sophistication to this simple acoustic song. I really enjoyed his NSFW song “Old Drunk Motherfuckers” about the worst people you meet in a bar, and his slide guitar ballad “Drain Me” has a nice Lennon-like weariness to it that makes it another standout. Brady’s music is ready-made for late nights over a bottle, so open a cold one and enjoy the cool refreshing taste of NoHo Calling.
