Boston, MA-based fuzz-americana artist (another new genre is born) Hayley Thompson-King cryptically refers to her debut solo album, “Psychotic Melancholia”, as a “Sodom and Gomorrah concept album” influenced by her childhood obsession with the so-called wicked women in the bible. Opening track Large Hall, Slow Decay is a blazing country ripper directed at a former bandmate with whom Thompson-King had a harsh break-up. The title also references the reverb effect that reminds her of this time in her musical life. But Thompson-King doesn’t need to hide behind effects when it comes to her vocals. Hear for yourself.
