EDITORS’ NOTES

David Brookings' love of classic pop was laid bare when he decided to record 209 Beatles covers over the course of 209 days. With his own music, he's carried on the torch. He cut a string of albums at Elvis' Memphis home base of Sun Studio, while the shimmering guitar riffs of "Whatever Happens Here Stays Here" and the keening vocal harmonies of "Another World" recall other Memphis legends: iridescent power-pop pioneers Big Star. But Brookings always brings a succinctly modern, alt-rock edge to his music, situating himself as a contemporary songsmith with a fine taste for the classics.
