Grammy winner Charles Goodan pairs Nick Weber's sly vocals with textured, unusual, and exotic production. These tunes boast some rarely coexisting qualities: cinematic, disarming, heartfelt, and satiric. “Girl Problems”, the first single, echoes new wave, Morris Day, Cake, Chris Butler’s work with The Waitresses, and even Gaucho-era Steely Dan. Weber’s wry storytelling is the core of the songs. He’s got his complaints, sure, but he keeps it in perspective: if men invariably have girl problems, they have to accept their fair share of the blame for them. “I’ve got two sisters and I want them to be happy”, he confesses, “so I wouldn’t want them to end up with guys like me”.
Always danceable, the record is rife with virtuosic performances from the likes of violinist Lili Haydn, percussionist Mauro Refosco (David Byrne), guitarist Jan Ozveren (Corinne Bailey Rae), drummer Bill Dobrow (Black Crowes). Charles Goodan, the architect of the songs, has worked as a producer with the Dust Brothers, Beck, the Rolling Stones, Carlos Santana, and scored the movie 'Fight Club'. The Girl Problems' tunes are unusual, with eclectic choices, such as incorporating voicemail messages and Webster definitions. Most importantly, Girl Problems is mischievous. Every song surprises, and flummoxes one's expectations.
