a world apart from his preceding country-soul covers album, all that returns amidst this entirely original material is his rich voice that reverberates around fresh, expansive sonic territory, drawing acid-country, afro-pop, blues, soul, jazz, & rock ‘n’ roll into a lush landscape.

comprising all of his own material, production & multi-instrumental skills, this record forges a gorgeous, languid & hook-infested gumbo of soul, funk, some jazzy blowing & Afro-pop, to arrive somewhere else entirely. the album also testifies to his studio skills, as he captures the glimmering, humid depths of those sweltering southern influences, despite his north-western heritage. “Some songs have long tails,” he says, referring to the jazzy flights of fancy & blues-laced guitar blow-outs. “I thought maybe we should cut them off, but they grew on me.” “a soul-funk cousin to [matthew e. white’s] ‘big inner’” 8/10 – uncut.
