C’mon C’mon (self-released)

Countrified, folksy pop predominates on C’mon C’mon. It’s a diverse album, held together by Manousos’s distinctive voice. There’s a hint of Elvis Costello to that voice, and to the music too — the lyrics often have a melancholy tone, leavened with wit. It’s hard to make music about feeling sorry for yourself without being a drag to listen to, but Manousos pulls it off.
