CARTOON IDEAS album review by Andrew Lea

"Gone are the Shiny Mirrors, Dirty People, and Streetwalkers, and present is something very personal and very atmospheric. It is melancholic at times, and very happy when you would least expect it. Themes ranging from social philosophy to current events, from Sandy Hook to a lost loved one, from figuring out life to “selling out”.

Scott has seemingly stepped away from the his “urban blues” and found himself caught in something that is three parts alternative, two parts folk, and two and a half parts minimalistic electronica, with tiny bits of Americana sprinkled here and there. His roots are still present, set firmly in the same soil in which they were first planted, but the tree has grown.

Cartoon Ideas flows like a stretched out piece of chewed bubble gum; while thickest at both ends, it is delicious all the way through; the first three and last four songs are what really make this album the treasure that it is. The opening track, Back Monkeys, was one he had been playing for a while, by himself and with Chemical Eyes, but was hardly recognizable. The opening synths and the harmonica which soon follows really show the difference between now and before. "
