Review of “Haunt The Cartoon Heart” –

These local art-rock visionaries are launching a tour at a party that also celebrates the release of a willfully eccentric single, “Haunt, the Cartoon Heart,” that effortlessly picks up where the songs on “Blasterpiece” — which we’ve often described as “like Frank Zappa writing for Queen” — left off.

And to be clear, we understand that it most likely took a lot of effort. But part of the key to their appeal is they make it look easy, no matter how much virtuosity and creativity they work into the mix.

As they describe the single on their Bandcamp page, it’s “a song about emotional instability, illustrated by a tumultuous relationship between a Ghost and his Heart who have both fallen in love with the same woman, but can’t find a way to reconcile their differences.” – Ed Masely
