David Newberry’s third release, Replacement Things is an album by turns hopeful then disillusioned then hopeful again—reflective, bold, and sonically ambitious. At times it feels as if he’s exposing the listener’s personal trials and failures through the songs, but he gets away with it by offering up his own with directness and accuracy. This record sounds and feels current. It’s not clean, it was made by someone who listened to music in the 90s, by someone who looks for the thread that connects us all within life’s contradictions. Replacement Things is, at its core, a rock n’ roll record with heart, soul and intelligence.
