Why do we like this?

Like a wild speedball of Ben Folds and Weird Al, Dave Paulson's concept album, Sandusky, Ohio, is something to behold. A fresh ode to '60s and '70s pop, the album traces Chris Farley's character from the classic '90s comedy, Tommy Boy.

You heard that right. An entire album about Tommy Boy. And it fucking rocks.

The first track is the banger, "Sandusky." It captures the project's ethos and sweetness immediately... while also reflecting the surprising drama and ache lurking on the fringes of the Chris Farley-David Spade movie. I can't recommend this project enough -- it's ambitious and strange, but also is a total jam for fans of this brand of throwback indie pop. 

The closest comparison I can think of is when high school-era me discovered Harry & The Potters. There's so much love here, it transcends mere parody. 

Paulson is an indie-rock singer-songwriter from Nashville who previously performed with the likes of The Privates, NORM and My So-Called Band. Now he's shifted away from confessional writing, and right into the lap of the iconic Thomas R. "Tommy" Callahan III.

Sandusky, Ohio was co-produced and engineered by Jordan Lehning (Andrew Combs, Joshua Hedley) at his East Nashville studio, The Duck.

Holy schnikes this is fun.
