Keeps getting better

MrE

Saw these guys live, bought the CD at the gig. Listened a few times. Thought, "pretty good, but they were better live." You know, that kind of thing. Ripped the disc to the iPod. Funny thing, though: now, whenever ones of these songs pops up on shuffle, I'm like, "Who is that?!?" Every Honeycut song is cool and different. Show stoppers, head turners. You know, the songs where you just stop and listen. And more so now, four years later, than when I first bought it… and that says a lot about the band and the album, I think. The title track is a great place to start. If you like that, you'll dig the rest of it.

my best emusic download yet

beanjam

A cool hard electronic sound, with nice soul-sounding vocals. My favorites are "Shadows" and "Silky", but the whole album is good. Download it now!

Honeycut delivers sweetness / cuts the crap

Dvoodoo

enjoy this melange of contemporary influences, a sort of Gnarls Barkley meets Squeeze in Small Faces clothing, while Beck observes from behind the two way tinted security mirrors...anyhow, possibly the most accessible thing Quanuum has put forth as of yet... vocalist Bart Davenport has other projects floating about...research em...

Instant Classic / Album of the Season

BoyGringo

"Shadows", man. It kicks, it swoons -- it does everything a classic single should. I nominate it for Official Fall Anthem; who's with me? As for the rest of the album, most of the tracks are catchier than other groups' lead-off singles. A definite repeater. I downloaded it all and wouldn't regret it if I'd paid full price. Do it. Do it do it do it.

Fun, yet intelligent...

azurehum

I've really enjoyed this CD - the variety of rhythms and styles (some bluesy/soul moments along with pop/rock), the often clever lyrics, the good quality of the singing, and the interesting arrangements all make this worthy of your downloads! One could start with the first track, but all are entertaining. I look forward to Honeycut's next effort...

One of the better debuts this year

Clipperfan

I love music that crosses genres and is difficult to catagorize. This band delivers quality rock/pop with an eletro twist that demands repeated listening. Very impressed.

They Say All Music Guide

Only occasionally do you find a group or album that manages to incorporate diverse influences into a unique sound and still remain absolutely accessible, be it to the casual radio listener or the die-hard record collector. Honeycut is such a group, and their debut, The Day I Turned to Glass, is one such album. Comprised of by-now fixtures in the Bay Area music scene Bart Davenport, Tony Sevener (who, though he uses both live and programmed drums on the record, plays — as in, taps out each snare hit, each cymbal crash — the MPC during shows), and Hervé Salters (whose keyboard work is found on many Quannum releases), the band weaves its way through soul, funk, rock, bossa nova, and electronica without ever stopping firmly on one, instead creating something that’s very much their own. Salters’ key grooves are biting but warm, moving from hard-edged riffs to lush chords, while Davenport’s vocals stay clean and smooth the entire time, which isn’t to say he’s lacking in versatility. He reaches easily into a falsetto in “Silky” and “Tough Kid” but stays lower in songs like the fantastically sinister yet somehow very bright and fun “Shadows” and “The Day I Turned to Glass.” It is, in fact, the darker, faster tracks on which Honeycut truly excel, where the talents of the three members come together most effectively and excitingly. Spooky chords and a key vamp haunt the title track as Davenport croons, “So what if you send me a bill/Don’t mean I’m gonna pay/You could send me a piano/Don’t mean I’m gonna play,” with confidence and swagger, both of which continue throughout the entire album. “Baby I’m so glad that your mama gave birth to you,” he sings in “Crowded Avenue,” doing his best Prince imitation, then switching to purposeful didacticism for the jazzy bittersweet closer, “Fallen to Greed.” Salters mixes live horns and strings into his keys, the whole record a fusion of near contrasts, like the name of the band itself, giving Honeycut an almost unclassifiable vibe about them that makes them entertaining and danceable while retaining their musical integrity. The Day I Turned to Glass is the kind of record that’s good for almost any situation; it’s quick but controlled, welcoming but with a mysterious edge, and, most importantly, always really funky, which makes for something pretty great, and very, very fun. – Marisa Brown
