Daniel Prendiville – Tantrum Ego (CD, 1999)

Daniel Prendiville is active in hometaping circles, a favorite of many, which is easy to see why from his debut CD release. Tantrum Ego bubbles with a funky pop feel that takes on lots of different influences throughout. Edgy guitar rock, makes way for Euro synth pop and technobeat, which yields to funk jams, and then whathaveyou. Prendiville handles all the instruments here with lots of tasty guitar and real drums. His vocal arrangements often opt for the not-expected which belies an XTC influence. Prendiville also reminds me of Todd Rundgren with his restless style changes and easy pop gift. Add Prendiville to your list of must-have hometapers.”
