If you got a style, you should stick with it and that’s what the Minneapolis-based band, Velvet Davenport does. Led by Parker Sprout, the band can best be described as a mix between incredibly bizarre and 60s psychedelia. Velvet Davenport has a handful of album out in the market, but just some months ago released their acid-pop-esque record Get Out.

It was the Winter of 2007 when these boys decided to come together. Velvet Davenport seems to be a bit absent in the internet, but they’re a great band who really evoke the spirit of the 60s, not only in their music, but also their music videos (which you can watch below) and their overall look. Not to mention that Sprout’s vocals are beautiful. Check out the Velvet Davenport in our BeatCrave Fav series below…
