Tales From The Atomic Tambourine
 
Tales From The Atomic Tambourine Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $10.00
Artist: Kingdom Of Mustang
 
 
Quantity:
 

“Tales From The Atomic Tambourine” is the third full-lengh by Kingdom Of Mustang.  Birthed during the pandemic of 2020, this collection paints from a broad palette of tonal colors and stylistic modes that at times harkens back to the golden age of AM radio yet does not sacrifice the modern pop-rock sensibility for which the band is known.  Mark Roebuck and Tim Ryan have written a collection of songs that are sometimes taut, sometimes languid, but always thought-provoking and infused with deceivingly simple grooves wrapped in rich vocal tapestries.  “Jeannie When You Killed The Stars” pushes and pulls through a descending figure in the verse that paints a picture evocative of the super-cool album cover and then explodes into a soaring chorus with an infectious melodic hook.  “At The Hi Lo Ha” shows the band digging up earthier roots and telling a story of the Woodstock days in a style reminiscent of Neil Young or The Band.  “Lemonade and Innocence” contrasts a wistful tune with a wall of saturated guitar that hangs respectfully in the background, leaving the power of the melody to stand in front, while “All You Know Is What You Know” starts to lean into an Americana type vibe and then turns down a 70’s production path with the strong inclusion of strings and woodwinds in the chorus.  "... an elegiac masterpiece comparable to Crowded House’s ‘Woodface’ and Lannie Flowers’ ‘Home’.  With its lilting, unforgettable melody, ‘Jeannie When You Killed The Stars’ stays with you long after it’s ended. ‘Yesterday’s Blues’ recalls Marshall Crenshaw.” - Pop Geek Heaven "A collection of twelve, finely wrought songs arranged to sonorous perfection, the offerings are layered, intelligent, and wonderfully mixed in a clear, balanced dynamic sure to wow everyone from the seasoned musician to the layman listener. Roebuck fans will embrace what they’ve come to expect from him: the moody, nuanced, resonant, searching quality of a voice unpredictable in its ornamentation and rife with the quality of an ageless nostalgia delivered so personally as to seem confessional. In wonderful companionship, Ryan’s husky vocals caress both narrative sides of the figurative sandpaper, knowing precisely when to switch from rough to smooth while remaining all the while accessible. The record is a celebration of all that it means to have a firm grasp on musical excellence.  It is the embodiment of a musical experience at its finest: one-part dreamy escapism; one-part tutorial in a masterful job well done." - Claire Fullerton  EXCELLENT!!!
