Amoeba Review

07/10/2015

Ezra Furman’s quirky power-pop tunes and wildly flailing voice will leave you with a smile miles wide. The Oakland-based artist, who has played previously with backing bands the Harpoons and the Boy-Friends, captures the feeling of a San Francisco that seems to be quickly fading with his freewheeling, sometimes carnivalesque tunes, full of saxophones and saloon pianos, and lyrics about walking around the city with a bus pass and a $5 dress on songs like “Restless Year.” Though its zaniness is what hooks you, Furman’s way with melody and arrangement keeps you listening. Clearly, as he sings in that track, he’s a dusty jewel in the crown of garagey power-pop.
