"...some of the most lyrically and musically rich modern guitar-pop written by and for people who appreciate such cutting, take-no-prisoners observations that simultaneously celebrate and poke fun at their own worlds." (Jason Damas, AMG) "Klass writes melodic confections that seep into your psyche and stay awhile, and does so with wit and intelligence." (Gary Glauber, PopMatters) "...steeped in pop/rock--Weezer meets Ben Folds meets The Hold Steady--leading you to sing along to songs that you’re hearing for the first time while stories unfold of relationships gone awry...." (Chuck Plummer, The Deli) Here comes The Davenports' third record, which sets tales of love, lust, mean, money-dangling mothers, superstitious panic attacks and the like, to a torrent of guitar-driven, melodic pop. Helmed by Brooklyn-based songwriter Scott Klass, who played alongside Chris Collingwood in the Fountains of Wayne frontman's previous band, The Davenports features Angela Webster and Tommy Borscheid (Rhett Miller), and Thomas Ward, and it has included members of They Might Be Giants and Candy Butchers. Violinist Claudia Chopek and cellists Eleanor Norton and Garro Yellin add multiple layers of melancholy to the mix when successfully blackmailed. Robert Draghi steps on the percussive accelerator. The Davenports’ song "Five Steps" is the theme to A&E's Emmy-nominated series, Intervention, now in its fourth season. The Davenports' pop is a tight weave of novel, wistful melody and vivid, sometimes skewed storytelling. As stated by Kevin Matthews on MTV Asia, "Klass is able to touch hearts and nerves by marrying words and music in a seamless construct."
