Martin Bisi is an in-demand producer who tries his hand at solo work nicely. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Recommended first album:
Sirens Of The Apocalypse is the first we've heard
2008—Black Freighter Records
Martin Bisi—vocals, guitar, effects
Billy Atwell—drums, percussion (6, 8), sitar (8, 10), lap steel (10)
Well, this is odd. Martin Bisi is better known as producer, but he negotiates being a solo artist well. He plays an unusual yet sometimes catchy blend of sounds that can be accessible if you're in the right mood. "Mary Maudlin" sounds very Frank Zappa and features the lovely Rebecca Moore as the muse of the piece. "Goth Chick 98" is pretty yet has an odd rhythm and a weird sound throughout. "Buddhist Girl" is quite droll, yet has a sting in its tail. Needless to say this wont be for everyone, but quite a few fans of the unusual will enjoy it. (email@example.com)
