Octoberman, fronted by Marc Morrissette, marches forth with its latest album Waiting in the Well.
It’s not often that you get to put Vincent Van Gogh and the Balloon Boy on the same list, but the master painter and the subject of a tabloid tale of bad parenting both inspired songs on this album’s tracklist. Throw in a grandparent’s romance and a Japanese novel on you have a mixed-bag of influences like none other and an impressive feat of songwriting compiled in a neat 10 track package.
