PAINT’s eponymous debut (Mexican Summer, 2018) appeared out of the ether, fully formed. It was praised for its originality and drew favorable comparisons to the likes of Kevin Ayers, Lou Reed and Julian Cope. The mess was the message and the decidedly mid-fi production found Siadatian both honoring and eschewing tradition. The album was accompanied by videos for the singles “Daily Gazette” and “Moldy Man,” both directed by Sam Kristofski (Connan Mockasin, Pond), with select performances in North America, UK, and Europe.
This year sees PAINT returning with the release of the ambitious Spiritual Vegas. While Ray Davies-smirks and Kevin Ayers-wit abound, Siadatian’s singular touch is unmistakable. Joined once again by producer / engineer Frank Maston at the helm, Spiritual Vegas features a rogue’s gallery of players with performances by Jackson Macintosh (TOPS, Sheer Agony) on bass and guitar, Nick Murray (White Fence, Oh Sees) on drums, and brothers-in-Las Spencer Dunham and Matt Correia on bass and percussion respectively.

“Hosono and Cornelius and Panda Bear had a love child and his name was Jared Mattson” is what new touring bandmate and collaborator Tony Peppers said of Jared Mattson’s demo tapes for his forthcoming 2022 solo release, Peanut. As the pandemic wrecking ball drama loomed over the music industry, amidst the covid lockdowns and consumed jaunt as a twin assemblage Mattson 2, Jared took to developing his own solo compositions in his casita in the hills of San Diego with drum machines, synths, a P-Bass, and his Stratocaster inspired by the newfound domestic solitude and necessity to keep busy at his work in order to stay alive. What resulted is a tape saturated, bizarre blend of psychedelic guitar, reggae induced city pop.
