The Slambovian Circus of Dreams
"...This spring 2015 the band finishes a year long tour of the U.K., US and Canada where they spread their contagious brand of quirky Americana promoting the 2014 release of 'A Box of Everything' their Sony Red distributed 'greatest hits you never heard'. Now beginning work on their sixth studio album, "A Very Unusual Head", Joziah Longo, (lead singer/songwriter for the band) describes the new bundle of songs as "A notebook of music about those go-to topics: meta-physical science and religion, poking fun with scorching humor at the state of the world, and a few anthemic beauties that will hopefully sweep everyone off their feet for a moment the sound may be more adventurous this time we've always had a bit of psychedelic grit that steals from our British cousins." For the uninitiated, the band's all over the map melodic avant folk conjures Tom Petty, Dinosaur Jr., and a fuller Buffalo Tom. Equal parts Washington Irving and Woodstock, the band taps a broad palette of styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to huge Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems. Playing art school roots-rock, trad folk and a moody but uplifting americana, they possess an extensive instrumental arsenal (accordion, cello, mandolin, theremin). "The entire root system of Rock Family Trees is embedded in Longo's voice."- The Big Issue, Scotland, U.K.
