Singer-songwriter Gus combines classic pop melodicism with '90s production savvy throughout WORD OF MOUTH PARADE. Chugging power-pop guitars, hip-hop-inflected rhythm tracks and ornate keyboard orchestrations come together on an album that mixes alt-rock/pop conventions with thoughtfully constructed melodies and an unerring gift for the Big Hook. West Coast pop magicians Patrick Warren, Joey Waronker and Jon Brion are on hand to provide just the right combination of radio-ready studio gloss and post-Beach Boys California sunshine.
