Some albums are made for playing loud in the car. However, Brant Bjork’s 13th album is the perfect soundtrack for cruising on your motorbike along the long dusty roads of California.

In a departure from recent offerings, Brant performs all of the instruments resulting in a warm cohesiveness. He hits a heavy psychedelic groove from the opening bar of Jungle In The Sound which permeates throughout each of the eight songs; the strong hook on the standout track Jesus Was A Bluesman will become your new earworm.

This self-titled collection is not afraid to organically let a song run for over six and a half minutes if the groove permits, and his mellow voice adds a warmth to the heavy rock vibe.
