Best Western (single)

by Scott Helland



From the album 'Never End The Rocket Century'

Scott Helland Guitarmy of One: The word “acoustic” carries a set of assumptions and associations that Scott Helland has been defying throughout his career. As the punk half of the popular acoustic duo Frenchy and the Punk, Helland explores a fusion of hardcore urgency with gypsy and dark cabaret tonalities and theatricality. On his new true-solo release, Never End the Rocket Century, Helland discovers an entirely different way to flout the stereotypes of acoustic music. These 10 concise instrumental compositions find Helland stating memorable, multiculturally-sourced melodies on guitar over luminous, jangling and driving rhythm tracks (all performed by Helland). The effect is cinematic and starkly eloquent; stylish, simple, and utterly coherent song to song. Never End the Rocket Century defines its own genre, a musical “place” that can only be explained by examining the path of its maker.
