Most people know Aaron Lee Tasjan as one of the wittiest, most offbeat, brilliant Americana troubadours writing and singing songs today. And the New York Times, NPR and Rolling Stone will all gladly corroborate. But steel yourselves, folk fans, because heís about to follow his restless muse straight out from under the weight of everyoneís expectations into the kind of glammy, jingle-jangle power-pop- and- psych-tinged sounds he hasnít dabbled in since his younger days playing lead guitar for a late-period incarnation of The New York Dolls. Really, the roots of Tasjanís new record, Karma for Cheap, stretch even deeper, drinking up the sounds of a Southern California childhood spent listening to The Beatles while riding around with his mom at the wheel of their navy blue Volvo station wagonóback to the very first pre-teen year he picked up a six-string and started figuring out all the pretty little chords in those Lennon-McCartney tunes. Back to the pure, blissful unfiltered innocence of falling in love with music for the first time. Aaron Lee Tasjan says he aims to use his music for good, but heís no protest singer. And Karma for Cheap isnít some heavy-handed, didactic political record cramming a set of talking points down anyoneís throat. Itís a finely tuned rock & roll seismograph measuring the dark and uncertain vibrations of the time in which it was created.
