Leo Magnets Joins a Gang [Import]
Australian 2009 release. Singer/songwriter, designer and actor David Wiley Rennick, best known for producing two internationally celebrated albums as part of Dappled Cities, has turned his hand to a blend of myth, music and storytelling with his least democratic work to date, The Curse of Company. For it's creation, Rennick collaborated with the equally enigmatic talents of TheRedSunBand's Sarah Kelly (vocals), Mr. Bungle/Secret Chiefs 3's Danny Heifetz (drums, percussion), Jack Ladder (bass guitar) and Gerling's Burke Reid (co-producer, engineer). The music draws on Rennick's multi-platform artistic practices to convey story on a massive scale, mixing the Psychedelic influence of the Velvet Underground with Neil Young's scalding Alt-Rock and Folk, and drawing on classic, coming-of-age storytelling that recalls a dizzying mix of the Odyssey, Blade Runner, 2001 and Apocalypse Now.
