MP3 ART PAUL SCHLOSSER - Reinventing Myself

How do we desribe the sillingness and different thought style of a christian who is a street musician and yet mixes his christian songs like "Bless The Lord Always" with ones about eating the Poppin Fresh Doughboy.

37 MP3 Songs
KIDS/FAMILY: Children''s Storytelling, SPOKEN WORD: Comedy

This is a review that was written by Tom Laskin in the Isthmus in an article called Local Color which you will find at:

One of Madison''s most enduring characters, Art Paul Schlosser has made a name for himself around the country with a steady stream of idiosyncratic songs that mix surrealistic imagery and his Christian beliefs with banal descriptions of his day-to-day life. On his latest offering, Reinventing Myself, he shifts from guitar to keyboard, thus bringing old subjects (like his hygiene-conscious cat) and new ones (like peanut butter sandwiches and the surfeit of pop stars in the current marketplace) a modern edge.

Sound kind of cute and kind of weird? It is. But that doesn''t mean Art Paul is some kind of freak. Although he''s very different from the usual self-involved singer/songwriter, he isn''t without talent. Not only do Reinventing Myself''s 37 tracks form a strangely coherent outline of Schlosser''s universe, they also challenge the notion that primitivist players have to be from the back country. And while his vocals are loopy and his melodies jerk to a conclusion without warning, it''s plain that Art Paul has perfected the difficult art of being himself. Frankly, I wouldn''t be surprised if some bicoastal ironist plucks him out of obscurity one of these days.
