A collage of songs that establishes Ben Barnett as a songwriter auteur, able to slither in and out of genres and manipulate their devices leaving a mark of brilliance. Influences run the gamut from the opener which devolves into a Jonathan Fire Eater farfisa groove, juxtaposed against the breezy pop gem “Boy Cries Wolf” recalling Belle and Sebastian. Other songs nod to the haunting locution of Smog, The deadpan beauty of the Red House Painters, the earnestness of Jjonathan Richman, and the dynamics of a mid-tempo Braid.
