Jeff Hanson – Son

Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat?that’s a guy singing. Acoustic songster Jeff Hanson has a high, airy voice that makes Badly Drawn Boy sound macho, but his pop sensibilities are not far removed from those of the woolly-hatted one.

With a super-spare production and an emphasis on subliminally infectious tunes possessed of a childlike simplicity, Hanson could be the Marc Bolan of the sadcore set.
