Last month I received a package that I have anticipated for nearly 2 years.
Along with it, a note...
A riveting story of the old west and mind control...
I squint my blurry eyes. Who's dat in the thank you credits?
I have only listened to this album about a hundred times. Which is why I haven't blogged on it yet. This go around Bryan Scary brings us an old west concept album to flow up the terrific mid-20th century sci-fi tales of the "Flight of the Knife" album. Mr. Scary is as talented a musician and composer as you'll ever find. Songs switch keys, styles, tempos, and time signatures with extreme ease. "Daffy's Elixir" is best described as a psychedelic blend of 70's prog rock and old west vaudeville. I think the only genres of music Mr. Scary doesn't master on this album is rap and maybe polka, but I'll have to listen again to check.
You can download the album or buy the limited edition booklet album that contains the story, lyrics, and credits. How did my name get in there you ask? I made a small monetary contribution to Bryan Scary via Kickstarter.com for the funding of the album. In return he sent a signed copy of the "Daffy's Elixir" limited edition booklet and CD. You'd be hard pressed to find a more original or imaginative album out this year. It was a long wait, but well worth it. We'll done and thank you Mr. Scary!
