21 years after Wu Tang Clan dropped, arguably, one of the greatest records ever recorded…
Well Done New Album Release – Max Heinegg
Sand Painting (2015)
This week’s new release comes from local singer/songwriter Max Heinegg. On his fourth solo record, Max lays down beautiful soundscapes, deep soulful lyrics, and a voice…oh man, that voice. Something about the way he sings that let’s you know he means every word he says. Sand Painting sounds so familiar, yet brand new at the same time. Songs like Small Hours really get under your skin, letting you feel the hairs on the back of your neck and that familiar lump in your throat.
and I’d try not to count the days
the small hours dry like rain
as our short dreams crack and seem
to be the dust we’ve always been
For the poetry enthusiast, there is an adaptation of W.B. Yeats, He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven, done beautifully. Had they taught poetry in school this way, I might have passed English.
Put this record on, go for a drive, thank me later.
