Lead singer and songwriter Mr. S.D. Ineson has described the thematically connected 10 song set as “mythological americana” where various genres, dylanesque surrealistic blues, slack alt-country, straight up folk rawk, and old timey ballads combine musically with lyrics inspired by the mythological atmospheres and locations of american roots music. Tupelo- birthplace of Elvis and John Lee Hookers flood apocalypse song, battered by Tornados, and the ever-flowing Mississippi which runs through the history of rock n’roll, deep country, folky wierdness, long gone american radio, and blind love blues.
Aiding this musical deja vue memoir of Americana are the multi-instrumentalist devotees of The Band’s Garth Hudson inhabiting the soundscape of this album.
