Every Waking Moment
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
Settling with a beard and a beat into the post-collegiate boho scene peopled by Jack Johnson, G. Love and Ben Harper, Citizen Cope makes mellifluous coffee shop pop with soul and smarts to spare. Album number three finds Cope -- aka Clarence Greenwood -- maintaining the sophisticated-yet-streamlined instrumentation, laid-back delivery and soft-boiled funk that attracted the Memphis-born Brooklynite's ardent fan base. Bonus track "Sideways" is a live take on one of the slow burners off Cope's previous album.
