Today The Big Takeover has the pleasure of offering up the full stream of Dan Webb’s newest LP, Oedipus The King, before its release on Inauguration Day. It is a timely drop date since the bulk of his material examines the toxic political atmosphere of the recent US election.

The gifted, Australian-based, psych pop maestro has a tendency to color outside the lines of accessibility, often implementing his spoken word baritone over twitchy, acid jazz tangents that sound like a warped collaboration between Julian Casablancas and Tom Waits. When he returns to earth and grounds himself, we are rewarded with fascinating and solid songs like the acerbic “Let Them Eat Cake” or the Beatles -esqe pop of “Look What’s Become Of You”.
