about

A psychedelic pop explosion for the whole family! Following the hit, “I Think I'm a Bunny,” Todd McHatton Presents Marvy Monstone's Mysterious Fun Time Dream Band, a unique, lovely, and altogether exceptional pop album for families with all the hidden complexities that McHatton excels at while introducing a new element of innocent simplicity brought to glowing life in the voice of Marvy, and his little orange friend, Finch. There is wacky absurdity and unexpected, intangible moments of glory throughout this lush, beautiful collection. McHatton has managed a deep dive into the hearts and minds of his strange and wonderful characters and the result is an inspired pop masterpiece with a gooey celebratory oddity that may appeal to Zappa, Beatle, and modern indie pop fans alike. If Willy Wonka and the Wizard of Oz started a rock band with Paul McCartney and Pee Wee Herman it might come close to what he has achieved here.

about

Todd McHatton California

Todd McHatton’s dense, psychedelic pop is unlike any kids’ music you’ve ever heard. The closest approximation might be a cross between Magical Mystery Tour-era Beatles and Harry Nilsson… About.com
