“My Zero,” the new video for Ezra Furman and his band the Boy-Friends, and one of the cuts from their new album “Day of the Dog,” offers up a crisp poppy sound with overtones of seventies orchestral charm. In a lyric wrapper of knowledgeable worldly ideals, that hint at algorithms and over population, the song is that breed of love song – quirky but honest. Furman strains his voice in a heartfelt nasal whine that’s more early John Lennon than Bob Dylan, but the songs are stories with straightforward composition that’s an easy listen. A good folk-rocker, but with fantastic saxophone Charlie “Bird” Parker-esc solo finishing out the song for the new release on Bar/None Records.
