“California Star” and the music of the Daintees is not my preferred genre of music, but “California Star” was a pleasant listening experience. I’d definitely add the album to my iTunes catalog so that I could rediscover some of this music over time. There wasn’t one song on the album that left me bored, but I must admit that I’m kind of partial to “Streets of San Sebastian.” As a fan of movies, that song fits right in with any Quentin Tarantino film or Spaghetti Western.
If you’re into the singer songwriter thing, but like music that has a lot of atmosphere…it’s almost visual, then I think you should give Martin Stephenson and the Daintees a listen. If you’re a filmmaker, well known or otherwise, you must check out the Daintees, because I think there is a good shot you could find a place for their music in your movie.
