Angel City, based around the album of the same name, is the title of Spencer's new show and features all-new original songs, as well as concert favorites and a few reimagined interpretations of previous recordings. Using the fabled city of Los Angeles as a backdrop, Angel City continues Spencer's meditations on love, fame, narcissism, and how an artist can maintain integrity and authenticity in a world which so often values neither. Angel City's lyrics and melodies reveal something of a stylistic departure from Spencer's previous records, although you'll certainly find his unique blend of blue-eyed soul, pop and film noir moodiness from the classic jazz era.  Incorporating slices of life from legends and nobodies, the city of dreams is built on projections and fantasy, light and darkness. Hailed as "immaculate," "classic Spencer," and "deeply moving and often surprising," early reviews of "Angel City" have been enthusiastic.
