Neil Fitzsimon actually introduced me to the term “Indie Dream Pop” and no one is sure where that originated but one thing's for sure, the world of music needs a new genre title…LOL. The songs featured in episode 39 are simply good songs, and good on one listen.
The first track is Girl in a Gilded Cage from the album Big Blue World. It's a showcase for Bee Brogran's voice, layered and beautiful. The second track we selected is The Cutest and the Cruelest from the first album by FaB Productions (Fitzsimon and Brogan Productions). The album was mixed by Pat Collier, the producer of Walking On Sunshine by Katrina and Waves. The Cutest and the Cruelest is the single from the album and reached number three in the French national download chart. To translate to French…”c'est énorme.” To translate into dog years? It's a huge pup.
Fitzsimon and Brogan's influences range from The Beatles, Elvis Costello, Jimmy Webb, Jacques Brel and David Bowie. Their aim is to produce pure pop for now people. Their aim is true.
