"Were you one of those kids who was distraught after discovering Black Flag was more influenced by ZZ Top and The Grateful Dead than The MC5 or Stooges? Well, you might wanna strap on a stronger carabiner before scaling these cliffs because youre more likely to discover pop gems than a stoned mystic in a cave. Organ is an anthem of Southern California patriotism with all the thrills of dragging in Lodi and peyote-munched soul-wandering in Silver Lake. This album is power-pop perfection, the Paisley Underground finally done right. Theres a big difference between playing every instrument and being a one-man band. Suffice it to say that ADAM PAYNE (RESIDUAL ECHOES) is a one-man band akin to Emitt Rhodes broadcast over solid-state transmitters. Maybe Grant Hart has the better voice while Bob Mould churned out better lyrics. What if the Kirkwoods melded into a creature that couldnt punch itself? Adam Payne, as one band, has made an LP that matches the chops and hooks of Captain Trundlows Sky Company or the bits of The Only Ones that are consistently lifted. The rumors that Payne was asked to produce the next Mudcrutch album have yet to be confirmed. Organ opens like Up The Academy but ends like Zabriskie Point in frustrated abandon that only leaves the listener wiser. Includes a free MP3 download." -Holy Mountain

Artist: PAYNE, ADAM
Title: Famous Blondes
Format: LP
Label: Selection
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
“Over the last 13 years, hes had over a dozen releases while fronting the slippery and misaligned "live-action-psychedelic-mix-tape-of-a-band", Residual Echoes. Ever the worker, this multi-instrumentalist also spends time working with a list of seemingly disparate artists including but not limited to 6 Organs of Admttance, Gun Outfit, King Tuff, Lorelle Meets The Obsolete, Cass McCombs, & Hepa/Titus.
As one listens, a multitude emerges: Egyptian princesses, ice cream men, cigarette girls and hijras dance in a multiracial, beach-salted crowd acculturated to the polyglot musics of the La Brea Tar Pits and Angeles Forest. Everyone is right on time. These ten songs are hard cash in the economy of souls. You can’t escape your parents’ record collection by listening to vaporwave, because vaporwave has taken its place in the eternal order. It’s a pity postmodernism can suck, but at least theres this disc for a consolation prize....You can almost picture him streaking the Malibu Mountain Colony houses of Herbie Hancock and the late Ronnie Montrose, pausing only to eat their lunches.” - Selection
"Another great whacked slab of zero-gravity pop assemblage from Adam Payne. The album shimmers with style-ghosts of Van Dyke Parks, Bob Markley, Albert Marcoeur and other great historical left-fielders, without surrendering an inch of Adams own strange and original vision." - Byron Coley
“Free your mind with the music of Adam Payne and history stops dead. This music will cure you of time, gentle people.” —Julian Cope
