Marty Thompson – “Paint What You Think”


Texas-based singer/songwriter Marty Thompson recently released the fun track “My Kind of Woman.” Its contagious vocal presence reminds of power-pop. The guitar solo extending past the two-minute mark plays like a rock classic, with the organ backing lending a psych-friendly feel. Essentially, the track does well in melding several familiar styles of rock and power-pop, with a post-punk-friendly rhythm section to add. More of this style and quality can be found throughout Thompson’s new album My Kind of Woman, streaming on Spotify here.

The artist has the following to say regarding the track:

My Kind of Woman is a futuristic, original modern rock album with a powerful production – blending real instruments, synthesizers, experimental pads, and multi-layered vocals into a harmony of music. Each song is written in a different key, and even a different scale, and used different sets of instrumentation. The blending of the instruments with the vocalizations and acoustic sounds and samples/synth creates a wholly original sound going beyond Modern Rock and a love for the bygone early 80’s Punk/Post-Punk MTV era. Not to worry, there’s and plenty of Texas soul in every byte…

“Paint What You Think” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2019’ Spotify playlist.
