no less hooky than previous records, the new songs ditch the goofy rock-and-roll bacchanalia narratives of earlier records in favour of expansive arrangements, a diversity of instrumentation, and lyrics that straddle the fence between painful ruminations and a childlike, creative energy untarnished by cynicism.

The record’s soulful and cosmic new direction is apparent from the album’s first moments: introduced by the gentle ringing of a chime, acoustic guitar, and warm organ tones, “The Other” is a narrative of redemption born of creativity. As Thomas sings about being stuck in traffic, directionless, with no particular reason to be alive, he hears the call of “the other,” a kind of siren song that, instead of leading towards destruction, draws the narrator towards a creative rebirth. fans of karl blau, ocs’ psych-folk ‘memory of a cut off head’ or ty segall need to hear this. “wide-eyed san-fran glam-soul” 4/5 – mojo.
