Icon Fetch – Green Blimp – CD Review
October 5, 2010
Melodic songwriter Dwight Twilley has returned with Green Blimp, his first album of new material in five years. In the meantime, he’s been busy cleaning out his archives; he’s recorded a ton of material that has gotten little if any official release.
He also recently put together a Beatles tribute, so it’s not surprising that Green Blimp has some Fab Four influence as well, especially on the Sgt. Pepper era “Me and Melanie.” The title cut, with it’s psychedelic marching beat and lyrics about isolating yourself from the outside world, sounds like Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd.
