about

“Rain is right, right as rain.”


That's from "Rain," the title song of Christopher Pellnat's new album, released on Houdini Mansions records.


It isn't a reassuring mantra about nature, cleansing or renewal. The song, and the whole album, enters into a dream-state chaotic storm in search of sustenance.


It's heavy stuff wrapped in whimsy. Though grounded with an acoustic guitar-driven singer-songwriter approach, the 10 songs on his album refuse to do what's expected of them. "WTF?" is a natural reaction when a vibraphone, dulcimer and synthesizer kick in, but it all seems right. Right as rain.


Christopher Pellnat is an atypical singer-songwriter from Hudson, New York, USA, whose music is a bit off-kilter and veers into surprising directions. His song craft rests on strong melody and lyrics that, even when dealing with serious topics, sometimes have an element of playful cleverness.


Some of his songs are expansive and elating, dealing with the big questions of life, love, spirituality and fate. Others come off as light novelty songs. But whether silly or sublime, a common thread runs through all of his work - he seeks to create something honest and true in the only way an artist can: through artifice.


Recommended if you like to listen to The Left Banke and the The High Llamas at the same time on two different machines while binge watching The Muppet Show.
