Painted Doll
 
Painted Doll Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $19.00
Artist: Painted Doll
 
 
Quantity:
 

Valley Lodge front man Dave Hill and Autopsy‘s Chris Reifert have teamed up to create a really interesting, fun new pop album with a bit of a harder edge.  Inspired by the pair’s love for British and Dutch psych.  “References are all over the map here, making for a really entertaining listen. While listening to Painted Doll for the first time, my house guest and I each heard different things in it. I love albums that invite conversation such as this one does.  “Together Alone” had me thinking Blue Oyster Cult while the weeping guitar of “Carousel” screams George Harrison. “She Talks to Mirrors” is a straight-up pop song what feels like it would have fit well in the early catalog of The Who. While “Down the Stairwell” is by no means reminiscent of The Ramones in treatment, there is something about its straight ahead punch that suggest to me that Joey would have loved to sing this one.  The title track stands out above all others. To my ears, “Painted Doll” is power pop, pure and simple. A looping, spiraling guitar creates a trance-like backdrop, setting you up for a killer hook of a chorus. “Painted Doll” would fit right in with Dave’s Valley Lodge persona.” – PowerPopNews.com  Ends with a garage/psych cover of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “"I Put A Spell On You”!  "It's Berwanger meets Queens of the Stoneage...with a little Naked Chollas thrown in!"- Matt Worman  RIYL The Grip Weeds and Third Of Never!  GREAT!!
