Reliably informed



Released: 25.08.23








Yes, I am also somehow shocked to discover that the almighty Buck Meek (otherwise known as the abstract sonic extraordinaire guitarist in the prolific, restless Big Thief) has managed to carve out some time between touring the world and cooking up an incredible body of sprawling work, to release yet another solo LP.

I’m not shocked, however, to discover that it is another brilliant release from one of the most boundary-pushing, singular six stringers of the century so far. As with Big Thief, there’s a grand plethora of ear candy here, which serves songs that run the gamut from indie pop to the quality country stylings of the title track. It’s an eclectic and engrossing collection of sonic wonder.
