Gandalf Murphy & The Slambovian Circus of Dreams have been dubbed “the hillbilly Pink Floyd” which is an apt description, particularly if you throw in elements of Incredible String Band, Neil Young, The Band, Bob Dylan, and maybe even some Frank Zappa as well.
Indeed, the band’s all over the map melodic avant-folk conjures Tom Petty, Dinosour Jr. and a fuller Buffalo Tom, possessing an exotic instrumental arsenal in addition to standard rock regalia. 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, sometimes folk and quirky Americana, they possess an exotic instrumental arsenal (accordion, cello, mandolin, theremin) in addition to standard rock regalia. Get down for this one – you’re in for a real treat.
“The entire root system of Rock Family Trees is embedded in Longo’s voice.”
