The Painted Saints take the “eclectic” label seriously, calling their music “heroin klezmer/spaghetti western/eastern european/cabaret chamber folk.” The band’s instrumental lineup includes guitar, bandoneon, clarinet, violin, lap steel, piano, bass and drums, and their songs are “tin can and twine romances in a color of rust.”

“This troupe feels like a French cafe ensemble that got lost time and was forced to work with sheet music from the last 100 years. But Painted Saints work it all into a cohesive dreamscape, the soundtrack to your dream if it was directed by Sergio Leone.”–Sepiachord

“Layers guitar, clarinet, strings, an archaic Colombian squeezebox, and whistles that would make Andrew Bird blush.”–Christopher Jensen, City Pages
