Sweet Baboo – The Boombox Ballads

The Boombox Ballads is the latest album from Welsh singer/songwriter Stephen Black aka Sweet Baboo. This album has kind of a throwback 70’s singer-songwriter, old vinyl sound that has become popular recently, mixed with the twee sound of artists like Belle & Sebastian or Jens Lekman. Sharp songwriting, a little cutesy at times but humorous as well. There is a prevalence of strings, horns, and other orchestral instruments in the production and it’s a gentle, laid back album. This album won’t appeal to everyone but will likely find some fans at WRUV.
