Marty Thompson - "Unwind" (Album)

These days, most of us could use some time to relax, unwind and recharge by taking the time to focus on the moment. Inventive Singer Songwriter and storyteller Marty Thompson provides an immersive psychedelic folk rock journey intended to untangle and expand the listener's perspective on new album "Unwind", due October 7th on streaming platforms. "Unwind" finds the multi-instrumentalist and producer preparing a fiery musical gumbo with equal parts folk, rock, alternative, country, jam band and psychedelic sounds served with mindful lyrical slices of every day life. From the sun-spotted wisdom of "Forgotten Dust" to the hazy psychedelia of "Ruta Maya Moonshine", "Unwind" joyfully expresses Thompson's unique artistic fingerprint.

Fans of artists like Widespread PanicGoosePhish and Grateful Dead should enjoy this expansive collection. This is Marty Thompson's 5th album and most adventurous to date.

"Unwind," brings back the jam scene sound of the 90's while keeping it fresh with unconventional studio work using modern quality components and unique instrumentation, all wrapped in a neat concept-album. The LP begins with the title track hailing the call to "walk the path to unwind," and we're off!

We trip through a lyrical 24-hour cycle after sharing a cup of late-night "Ruta Maya Moonshine" and explore night in the Hill Country of Texas under a full moon. 7:AM comes early, and we take a stroll to admire this amazing day..."so much to see..." Morning bleeds into a long and sunny afternoon on a Sunday where we stay for extended jams under intense Sunshine. 

Finally, we share sundown with the ones we love in Paradise, before heading off into night once more. The farm cat peeks in on Old John during a sandstorm as he plays his fiddle made of gold, and we all end up at the neighborhood bar for last call from the Bartender. Goodnight! Finally, the LP reprises the title track, reminding us all to UNWIND. Please enjoy this journey of original sound and poetry."
