John Calvin' Wish Alloy


None October 7th, 2010

Norman singer/songwriter John Calvin's second album, "Wish Alloy," is official this week. It's a seven-song folk send-up that dips toes into indie-pop and country Americana.

The self-titled midpoint has pianos, organs and trumpets behind Calvin's youthful, aching croon. At a fast, rhythmic clip, the opening track, "Nonsense," makes a lot of sense, and its tambourines, shakers and high-pitched lead guitar line create a fun, carefree structure.

"Stompkick Blues" is an outright down-home with upright bass, snappy piano parts, snare drum brushing and finger-picked guitars playing as a big a role, as Calvin scats sparsely between the back-porch instrumentals. In all, "Wish Alloy" delivers strong musical metallurgy.

Calvin debuts the disc 9 p.m. Friday at the Second Wind Coffee Shop, 564 Buchanan in Norman. He also performs 4 p.m. Sunday at Norman's Groovefest. For more information, visit www.myspace.com/jcabney. "”Joe Wertz
