Object Permanence

by Mutts

On their first unplugged album, the piano-led trio sounds like an early Tom Waits combo playing live in a room together, with lyrics of Randy Newman's expert cynicism and John Lennon's activist urgency.
Genre: Jazz: Ragtime

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Maimone pulls no punches, with deeply honest – and sometimes brutal – lyrics. His words are alternately charming, depressing, and hilarious, vaguely reminiscent of Harry Nilsson. Songs like "Prizefighter" are heartbreakingly poignant - a sweetly melancholy ballad, he croons about his unfaithful lover: "She never loved me, but she never tried." Although bleak at a times, there is always a wry sensibility to his lyrics." - indie-music.com

"Sounds like Randy Newman with some Tom Waits, Graham Parker, Elton John, Doctor John, and Professor Longhair. Too raucous R&B/ragtime to be a piano bar star - he's too scratchy-voiced and proud to play Billy Joel's "Piano Man" - the superlative-fingered, aggressive Maimone, upright bassist Bob Buckstaff and drummer Chris Pagnani pump out jump 'n' jive with aplomb, panache, and abandon." - Big Takeover Magazine
