  Review
   
  1313 Mocking Bird Lane is the 20th album from Paul Roland, the man Record Collector magazine called a ‘Psychpop genius’ and whom ‘Shindig’ magazine celebrated with a 7-page feature in March this year under the title ‘Return of the King’.
Since the appearance of his first album ‘The Werewolf of London’ in 1980 (a John Peel favourite and a regular featured album at the legendary Bat Cave) Roland has written and recorded 20 albums including ‘A Cabinet of Curiosities’ which ‘Rolling Stone’ named “one of the best albums you’ve probably never heard”, the H.P. Lovecraft-inspired ‘Reanimator’ and ‘Bates Motel’ with songs written for surviving members of the Velvet Underground. For four decades Roland has been spinning twisted tales of Victorian villains, eccentric Edwardian inventors and the supernatural against a backdrop of gothic-psych-baroque pop, earning him the title “the male Kate Bush” (a comparison attributed to former label mate Robyn Hitchcock) and, more recently, “the Godfather of Steampunk”. His highly literate lyrics, often macabre themes and strong melodic gift has attracted an increasingly large and loyal cult following while his proudly independent ethos has ensured he has remained a cherished niche artist. Paul’s first album for Dark Companion, ‘White Zombie’, was acclaimed ‘a masterpiece’ by RAI, Italy’s national TV and radio broadcaster, and his last group album ‘Bitter and Twisted’ was nominated for ‘Album of the Year’ in a French rock magazine and ‘Album of the Month’ in several national magazines in Germany.
1313 is Paul’s strongest set of songs to date, taking in dreamy psych with a 19th century Parisian setting (‘Salon of the Senses’), quirky sixties pop (‘My Next Life’, ‘Little White Lies’ and ‘Won’t Go Surfin’ No More’) and what a US rock mag once described as ‘goth rock as cartoon’ on the title track, a paean to the souped-up hearse driven by cult 60s TV family The Munsters.
