Release Info: Greg Ashley-Painted Garden
This guy's roots go back to garage bands like the Gris Gris and the Mirrors, and thems good enough roots if I do say so. I like both of those bands just fine, but it's his solo work that really cooks my catfish. He doesn't drop all the garage rock elements, but this leans far more toward the fractured acid dappled works of Roky, Syd, and Skip. I have no idea about the state of Greg's mental health. I can only assume he's doing much better than that mighty triumphrant. People looking for more of the harrowing/beautifully damaged side of the psych continuum with find much to be satisfied with here. Even rainbows can contain some dark hues.
