If “99” is any indication, Harper Simon owns some very cool stuff – including a vintage Chevelle, a Leica camera, a red turntable and some Beach Boys and Elvis Costello vinyl. Unfortunately, as the video plays out, we learn that he doesn’t have what he wants most: the beautiful brunette he knew some 14 years ago.
Harper – the son of one of rock music’s all-time greats, Paul Simon – is quite the chamber-pop talent. His new Tom Rothrock-produced album, Division Street, is available on iTunes and abounds with shimmering, breezy pop-rock that stands on its own and then some. See Simon’s tour itinerary here.
