Album of the Day MAD PAINTER Monday 9-23-19

Mad Painter is an amazing album.  It is post-punk psychedelia meets Beatle-esque magic, clever compositions that have a intriguing originality despite drawing upon so many influences in a textured rug tapestry of delightful audio.  Track 3 emphasizes this position, "Soldier Boy," taking Jim Morrison's "Unknown Soldier" and merging it with a march through the land of Oz.  Eerie and compelling all at the same time.  "Beware of the Dream" has flavors of Ken Hensley's "Easy Livin' " from Uriah Heep
