Of course, the Wolfmother singer keeps moving - especially his vocal chords. They feel most comfortable when they are allowed to reach the heights of a younger Robert Plant and reach air alarm levels. In the musical timeline, the Australian orients himself to the early seventies, as usual actually. However, his "solo project" comes across rougher and more unpolished. The unbridled rhythm section gives the whole the character of a session. It took place in Stockdale's hut in the casual surfer and artist ambience of Byron Bay and was great fun for everyone involved. At least that's how the seventeen songs come across and that's how the maestro wanted it. Most of the musicians are the last of the wolves (Peres, Steele, Hammond, Rosser) - plus their former drummers Rockwell-Scott and Atkins. Tip for breathing with all the steam: "Suitcase (One More Time)", with acoustic guitar beautifully relaxed on the hippie beach - or in the rolling VW bus.
