Dale Earnhardt Jr. s debut album entices the ear with its bubbly melodies and tickles the mind with its clever mix of electronic beats, floating harmonies and organic instrumentation. Joshua Epstein (from the Silent Years) and Daniel Zott concocted these beguiling tracks in a Detroit-area basement studio, lending them a playful homemade feel. A Beach Boys influence is evident in the interweaving of gauzy and abrasive textures on Morning Thought and When I Open My Eyes, while the old-fashioned tunefulness of Simple Girl recalls White Album-era Beatles. released new single Morning Thought on the 27th February on Warner Bros. Records, which sort of sounds as though it should have been a bit Daffy Ducked right from the outset. However, it’s a decent single with dream pop sounds interspersed with fussy tones. The xylophone melodies work well with the guitar riffs as Morning Light opens. It gets pretty REM sleep in the mid section, with slightly unnecessary harmonies, but it comes back down again to end the track. There’s random sounds filling the spaces in between and the electro back-track gives it more of an interesting. It’s A Corporate World, their debut album, had already been released in North America by the time Morning Thoughts was put out, and the album got a full UK release in May ahead of several summer festival dates.
