Brett Dennen, Grizfolk

KAITIE TODD
8 pm., Friday November 22 | Sold out.
Aladdin Theater
3017 SE Milwaukie Ave.
 
[SINGER-SONGWRITER] Let’s be honest: Brett Dennen is probably not the first person you would choose to take wilderness-survival advice from. Dennen appears to be just as aware of this as you are, but that doesn’t make his latest album, Smoke and Mirrors, any less influenced by his time spent in the mountains working on his fifth release. Verging on Tom Petty one minute before heading into Tegan and Sara-styled pop territory, Smoke and Mirrors drips with nostalgia for the twangy pop of the late ’70s, led by the anthemic first single “Wild Child,” an ode to “good vibes and sunshine,” as Dennen puts it. Continuing to explore themes of being yourself, falling in love and staying forever young—all backed with lilting slide guitar and Dennen’s fingerpicking—the sound isn’t completely unexpected, but for an artist as sturdy as Dennen, that slight tweak in style counts as a reinvention.
