An interesting collection for its gathering of ideas and its musical prowess combined. In many ways the songs are unpredictable, but in many others they feel familiar and comforting.
The whole thing feels like a live, in the moment, unedited outburst of expression & personal turmoil. As he wanders off creatively into his thoughts & into this moment, you can’t help but follow him.
At only four tracks long there isn’t a great deal of time to express themselves within or to make an impact, but somehow they’ve managed both to an impressive degree. It all feels very natural & that lets it connect & entrance its audience.
A single that stands out by a mile for its metaphorical strength, its entrancing melody, and its immediately uplifting musicality – among so many other elements that really help it shine.
There’s a definite hint of Leonard Cohen about Lorusso Jr.’s songwriting & the sound of his voice. The depth & the emotion, the delicacy & grit, all work smoothly together to give the story-line a certain weight & authority.
The duo exercise a sheer love for music – their passion runs through everything, making this far more about the writing & the expression & being lost in the moment than anything deeply rooted in genre or specific styles.
John Deere Green, a Joe Diffie original, comes through with a colourful & family-friendly ambiance – an organic & joyful way to let the story within shine brightly.
The perfect playlist of indie-rock & country fusion, offering both the grit & storytelling of Americana, alongside some superbly immersive soundscapes & unforgettable melodies.
Spayed Koolie offer up a quality collection of songs on this album. The music is smooth with clear-cut rhythms & an organic, Americana-infused pop aura that reaches out in an all-inclusive way.
The raw energy of a folk-rock, knees up band – the likes of which you’d catch around the stages of a summer festival – plus this interesting thread of story-telling & some really appealing set-up choices.
You get a sense this music comes naturally to the artist, which, combined with these folk-rock, acoustic ska rhythms & vibes, makes for a totally enjoyable EP.
There’s a delicacy to the music but still it manages to hit with impact – the sort of sound that would slowly but surely lure you over to be a part of the moment.
