Following a self-recorded debut and full-band follow-up that was tracked live in a studio under the guidance of Chris Funk (the Decemberists), '70s rock disciple Kyle Craft returns with Showboat Honey, his third Sub Pop release. Still fusing American Southern rock, British glam, and the songwriter's own knack for colorful characters and phraseology, Showboat Honey was not only produced by Craft with two members of his band (keyboardist Kevin Clark and bassist Billy Slater), but named for his backing five-piece. The track list opens with the collaborative "Broken Mirror Pose," an under-three-minute, saxophone-aided barroom jam.
