Now Playing: Brett Dennen's Feel Good Return To Baeble

A few years back, singer-songwriter Brett Dennen strode into our backyard and delivered a batch of heartfelt, acoustic honesty with songs from his 2013 release, Smoke and Mirrors. That album is a rustic offering, very much shaped by Dennen's lifestyle living on a ranch in the mountains of Northern California; a place where writing sessions were bookended by long hikes and cool drips in the lake.

Returning to Baeble (this time in Brooklyn), the tall and lanky, laid back Californian brought three tunes from his newest album, Por Favor. They are songs once again influenced by the landscape. It's not difficult to imagine Dennen perched on some rock, looking down into the valley below, writing a song like "Tengboche". Or casually jamming on "Bonfire" on a moon-lit night on the beach. The great outdoors lives in Dennen's music.

Por Favor was just released earlier this week. While there are some quieter, somber moments, a lot of the record is upbeat, sampling elements of calypso, reggae, and other Caribbean treats as it cycles through. "But the upbeat songs have a depth to them," Dennen told us. "I think there's layers. You can listen to it and tap your foot and sing along. Or you can listen to the lyrics and feel something".
