“And the Etceteras” Marshall Holland
Local (Salinas) indie singer-songwriter creates catchy, melodic pop songs. This is his third self-released album. The melodies are crisp and clean, well arranged and produced. In addition to being a solo artist, Holland is a much sought-after session musician, who plays all the instruments and even does his own artwork on his album releases. Holland is on the Mystery Lawn label, which also handles another local band, The Corner Laughers.

Recommended: 4, 6, 1, 9, 7. No FCCs.

1. (4:01) Take Me – Mid- to up-tempo, bouncy, sweet and catchy indie pop. Simple backbeat and instrumentation. Great hooks. ****
2. (3:24) At 65 – Keyboard hook that is very reminiscent of the Bangles “Manic Monday.” Wistful vocals about looking back at the unfulfilled dreams of a lifetime.
3. (3:06) Oh Please – Bright and jangly, with a throwback pop sensibility.
4. (4:20) Fool Me – 1970s vintage melodic pop. Mostly acoustic. Strumming guitar with a simple, yet effective bass and drum rhythm. Contemplative vocals. ****
5. (1:04) To the Scene of Them All – First of three short instrumental interludes. Harp and synth orchestra flowing and swelling.
6. (3:21) Goodbye September Days – Simon and Garfunkel feeling. A melancholy trip back in time. Piano. Acoustic guitar. Strings. Bells. ****
7. (4:08) Radio Style – Starts with strummed acoustic guitar like Scott McKenzie’s “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in your Hair)”. Leads into a mid-tempo toe tapper that fondly recalls radio from the days before corporate conglomerates. Acoustic guitar. Simple drums. Strings. Was released in 2013 as the first single. ***
8. (1:14) In the Swing of Things – Jazzy instrumental interlude — with piano and (synth) vibraphone, backed by a syncopated beat.
9. (3:26) Elise at Least – Indie folk-rock in the Eagles tradition. Nice harmonies in the chorus. Polished and well done. ***
10. (3:16) Can I Borrow your Pillow? – Rhumba style?!? This one-man band can do anything! Up-tempo. Strumming guitar. Gentle tapping rhythm created with drum sticks on rim.
11. The Key of Sea (1:38) – Soft and silky instrumental closer, with jazzy underpinnings.
