"Watch The Paint Dry" by Fort Gorgeous beautiful and magical feels like 70's chamber pop on high

Watch The Paint Dry by Fort Gorgeous is an enchanting whimsical creation. It is like 70's chamber pop on high. It has a beautiful embrace even though it has a sort of hyper sense of reality. Billy Libby is both the author and provocateur vocalizing in an artful self aware sort of way. A voice made for the stage, Libby's instrument is perfectly controlled and tugs at the heartstrings in a pure way as if he is singing a lullaby to children.

The Bottom of the Sea—Libby’s first record as Fort Gorgeous—finds him adding a hi-fi pop sheen to the songwriting style he unveiled on previous solo releases The Little Bird and Pitter Patter. This cleaner, brighter, more dynamic sound comes courtesy of co-producers Gary Atturio (Psychic TV, Shapes in Calgary, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) and Saul Simon MacWilliams (Ingrid Michaelson). Atturio and MacWilliams also played a variety of instruments on the record, rounding out a lineup that includes drummers Sarab Singh (Sara Bareilles) and Tim McCoy (Darwin Deez).

Fort Gorgeous’ The Bottom of the Sea will see its official release on May 4, 2018.
