Boston-born, Brooklyn-based indie artist Craig Martinson is diving headfirst into the wonderful world of musical versatility on his sophomore EP, My Love Is True: with lovable, storytelling akin to Fountains Of Wayne and psychedelic-pop rhythms like something off of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Martinson creates a multi-genre medley of indie-rock presentations, psych beats, and pop elements.
On lead track “Monster Man”, echoing vocals, spinning rhythm, and sparkling percussion act as an old-fashioned ballad, musical theatre number, and indie anthem all in one, which is perhaps Martinson’s biggest asset as a musician. My Love Is True is all about big sounds and big creativity. The experimentation of his work pays off as Martinson weaves intricately special and slightly off-beat (in the most wonderful, successful way) music that transports listeners to the middle of the 60s where Martinson’s most significant influences clearly reside.
