AMERICAN PANCAKE – 1/27/21:

Brendan Brisk is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, producer and vocalist based in Wilkes-Barre, PA with a sound described as “psychedelic funky jazz pop” and after diving into his latest creation, “Chai Tea / Tai Chi”, I think it is an apt description, a tidy one but does it do justice to Brisk’s artful aesthetic? I think not.  From the onset, there is an easy, breezy sway with ascending electric guitar lines as Brisk sings with personal pushed lyrics, painted with a patina of stomach churning reflections, “your innocence, it scares me lady”that belie the chill musical tones.”
