Reliably informed


Sacred Bones Records

Released: 17.09.21








Award winning actor Caleb Landry Jones working with the same team as on his first release has developed an understanding of the joy and fear to be had as a minstrel of the age. Less establishment shattering, because that’s been done, but more a reverential worship and an almost Kinks-like mocking intonation liberally smeared with the absurd, he taps into a familiarity of the pomposity involved in keeping up appearances and then sublimely undermines it with keen observation and tradition shattering ridicule lovingly swaddled in psychedelia.

The final track This Won’t Come Back is an epic parade around the circus ring, tumbling over and over into a kaleidoscopic stream of musical psychoactive paranoia that any early Floyd fan would revel in.
