Drew Danburry = Elliott Smith + Bright Eyes

Drew Danburry vulnerable, naked-heart-on-the-sleeve, psychologically-helpless indie-rock folk spillings—it's not bad, alright? But the song titles are the best part: "It Starts With Indigo, Orange and Green," "It Ends with Red, Violet and Orange," "Coming Around Like the Karate Kid." It's best when Drew gets slower, as in "Know Your History Before You Become Part of the Repetition;" acoustic guitar and muted vocals are all you need to rip the listener's bleeding, still-beating heart from their sliced-open ribcage.
