Most people know Aaron Lee Tasjan as one of the wittiest, most offbeat, brilliant, weed- smokin’ & LSD microdosin’ Americana troubadours writing and singing songs today. And the New York Times, NPR and Rolling Stone will all gladly corroborate. But steel yourselves, folk fans, because he’s about to follow his restless muse straight out from under the weight of everyone’s expectations into the kind of glammy, jingle-jangle power-pop- and- psych-tinged sounds he hasn’t dabbled in since his younger days playing lead guitar for a late-period incarnation of The New York Dolls.
“Zdan stretches her legs with her solo career, exploring the middle ground between the Beatles, the Breeders and the Bangles on this hook-heavy garage-rocker. Come for the guitar work, stay for the reverb-drenched harmonies, which connect the dots between the poppy and the psychedelic Americana.”
