Elkas earned his performance stripes fronting Montreal indie rockers Local Rabbits, before winning serious songwriter cred with his solo debut, Party of One, a collection of sensitive pop that drew comparisons to Ron Sexsmith. Elkas’ excellent sophomore effort, produced by Charlie Sexton, also hints at Sexsmith’s influence. But songs like the soulful title track, with its slow burn and sweet falsetto, is reminiscent of Bill Withers, while the tender, slinky “Something Beaming” suggests Jesse Winchester. Folky, funky, r&b bliss.
