This is the Pedal Steel Transmission at their naive finest. Stereolab collides with Hanks of all generations to rhythm-up a good feast. Pedal steel and distortion, alternate tunings, time-signatures discarded, feel Pedro the Lion through John McLaughlin and a suddenly talkative Tortoise. This is the album that got this foursome really moving amidst a a sickened clan afraid-of-everything country and beautiful alike… A group spent from trying too hard, sick from the overblown serious… 23 and angry from the rules… yelling at the ceiling at 4AM. Oh, and a budding guitar hero or two.
