With his recently released album The Arrow racking up critical kudos left and right, North Carolina’s Jeffrey Dean Foster (Right Profile, Carnys, Pinetops) now has a superb new video to go with it. The track is called “Morningside” and it’s one of the record’s highlights. Check it out:
Our astute reviewer called The Arrow “a gift of epic proportions… For folks who like their songwriting sharp and their sonics sublime, this is the album you’ve been waiting for. And for fans of classic Southern pop—dB’s, Let’s Active, Connells, R.E.M. of course—[it will] rekindle all that jangle lust you’ve kept tucked away in your hearts these many years. Anybody who’s followed Foster’s career to date is in for a shock when they hear this album. I don’t mean “artist takes an unexpected stylistic detour” kind of shock; as with the RP and subsequent outfits the Carneys and the Pinetops, Foster still specializes in power pop-tinged Americana, with obvious reference points being Springsteen, Petty and McGuinn. But this is the kind of record that can stop you in your tracks it’s so good.”
