Sound alternatives

Juliette Foster, by Phil Angotti (Jam Records). Acoustic pop.

Angotti has composed a soundtrack for an imaginary movie. Its billowy acoustic textures are reminiscent of Eric Carmen, Zombies, Left Banke and other classic pop artists. The record is sublime and thoroughly engaging, relying on Angotti’s supple tenor and strident rhythms to cast its spell. The title track gets a welcome propulsion from cello accompaniment, and fans of Paul McCartney’s first solo album might think they’ve stumbled on an album of lost outtakes.
