ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Corey Landis joins the ranks of great troubadours like Warren Zevon and Tom Waits with his debut solo full-length."
--Skratch Magazine

"Ed: Darkly moody songs in a drunken manner. Excellent lyrics, interesting musicality, depth and soul.
Edd: Rollicking DIY blues folk. Gritty and real. Great lyrics. I will buy him a drink.
Eddy: The words are prolific... the singing makes me want to run screaming from the room.
Plank: It's like Bono singing Tom Waits, or is it Tom Waits singing Bono?... with a swagger."
--Hybrid Magazine

"If Charles Bukowski could sing, he'd sound like this.
The music is great. He sounds great. I'm afraid of this guy. ****1/2 (out of 5)"
--SouthOfMainstream.com

"'Feast of Scraps' literally smacks the listener upside the head with its audacity and sonic inventiveness. Landis simultaneously honours and flips the bird to singer-songwriter forebears Joel, Cohen, Springsteen and Waits, all the while ensuring his place at the last diner with contemporaries Folds, Oberst and Wainwright."
--Dan Bryk (www.cdbaby.com/bryk)

"Very cool stuff. Something raw, truthful, dark, and yet... fun."
--Pete Forbes (www.cdbaby.com/forbes2)

Landis is a part of the recent resurgence of gifted singer-songwriters that parallels singer-songwriter age of the '70s from which Landis gleans much inspiration. Billy Joel, Elvis Costello, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Warren Zevon and Randy Newman have all heavily influenced Landis' work, as well as that of his contemporaries with whom he feels a shared aesthetic. Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes, Eef Barzelay of Clem Snide, Josh Ritter, Dan Bryk, Ryan Adams, Ben Folds, and Rufus Wainwright are a part of this current singer-songwriter revolution with whom Landis hopes to one day be mentioned.

This Album Rocks My Box
I could quote the whole album. There's not a single song on Feast of Scraps that fails the "new album window test" for me -- that ten second window where you either decide you want to hear the rest of the song, or skip to the next track. I absolutely inhaled every track, and I'm still holding my breath.
