grinning, sun-warped choruses, jangly western lopes & confessionals cut with wry wit & crude details fill this meticulous work of morbid fascination & offbeat romanticism.

yoni wolf & co return with a fully live band effort, embellished with strings, choirs, woodwinds & horns behind that skewed but forever winking eye on the human condition. 'waterlines' folds idyllic harp figures into a darkly shimmering beat while yoni drops backwards brags & dissects his public persona, 'white english' bounces over some kind of mutant mariachi dub while 'thirst' bends spare chamber-pop into a desert-worthy drawl, under a tale about black cowboys & failing faith.
