Reviews have been rolling in for Dan Webb’s second studio album Oedipus The King. In addition to first single ‘Let Them Eat Cake’ being selected for featured high rotation on SYN 90.7FM in Melbourne, the album has attracted some very high praise from music critics abroad. This has included comparisons to high caliber artists such as David Bowie, Miles Davis, Julian Casablancas and Tom Waits. Here’s some highlights of what critics have been saying:

“The future of music… the perfect soundtrack for the next four years… the next forty, too.”

Popdose (US)

“Musically dense, it recalls Bowie’s Berlin period and refuses to pull its punches”

CLASH Magazine (UK)

“An exceptionally confident, daringly concise and timely release, and a great sign of things to come from this exciting new voice.”

The Cutprice Jukebox

“Dan Webb scathingly dissects the toxic politics of the US Presidential Election…the takeaway message…appears to be multi-fold.”

Rebel Noise (US)

“A political progressive’s lyrical wet dream….’Oedipus the King’ showcases Webb’s gift for taking disparate musical genres and fusing them into a cacophony of electronic rebellion”

Blasting News (US)

“The gifted, Australian-based, psych pop maestro has a tendency to color outside the lines…like a warped collaboration between Julian Casablancas and Tom Waits.”

Big Takeover Magazine (US)

“While applying keyboards that can play out like orphaned Miles Davis ‘Bitches Brew’ parts, Webb has a lot on his mind and in his creative spirit…a beautifully twisted lyrical mind… Oedipus The King is a delightful aural journey down Dan Webb’s unique sonic rabbit hole.”

“There is an 80s, David Bowie feel to the instruments and vocal styling in Let Them Eat Cake, and this backdrop augers well for the message Webb seeks to pass on the song.”
