"Concert Preview Pocket of Lollipops and Painting Soldiers Hit Speakeasy and Dada With Art and Music in Couples"

New York's Painting Soldiers and Miami's Pocket of Lollipops have a lot in common. They're both duos. One dude, one lady, and they're all a bunch of artists with instruments. They're all bringing their artsy and sonic talents to PBC to provide us with a sensory and cultural overload.
This leads us to Painting Soldiers, in a way. Their recent album Wet Woods was produced by Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo (talk about those credits!). After performing with Tommy Ramone, the band's bio claims he described their music as "beautiful and was impressed with their original songs." - Broward Palm Beach New Times

"'Yeah New York, Andrea Hansen is Painting Soldiers'"

"She shares a name with Beck and possesses a vocal fragility reminiscent of Conor Oberst yet despite these 'facts', pointless and impressive respectively, Andrea Hansen is very much her own woman.
Sat at Fun House Studios in Brooklyn's Crown Heights, this 26 year old life long New Yorker comes across at first as something of a mystery. The deep brown eyes hold you under a caught in the head lights gaze of intensity for a split second, the next there is an avoidance of eye contact that screams social discomfort. Once settled however, and happily peppering the conversation with dry witticisms, Hansen shows enough character to allow you to start piecing together the woman and her music. Andrea Hansen is queen of Painting Soldiers, and the crown she wears well." "Ever-present hook line splendor that will wet a dry eye and leave your heart aching for more." -Frank Raige - Frank Raige

"Forced Exposure"

"From Andrea Hansen's fertile mind and nimble fingers comes Painting Soldiers. Most of her work is recorded in a small one room apartment. Andrea has been able to unleash her talent and imagination that is clear and unadorned. This debut 12" is sure to transport the listener into an existence that transcends the common and everyday."
-Joe Gaer - Joe Gaer
