"Step inside a Lynchian underworld that takes its cues from
Bill Callahan’s alt-country-tinged Smog project and indie-folk icon Elliot Smith"
Dazed & Confused
"You could call the country-inflected sound of The Sirens of Titan
an otherworldly existential blues for the 21st century"
“Apocalypse Sessions has the ‘live-in-session’ feel of classic albums,
such as Beggar’s Banquet, while also feeling vital and modern”
Boys By Girls
"A dark, understated acoustic-led offering with classical depth and scope”
"If you can do something with the strange expressionistic, drug-shattered solo works of Syd Barrett after his removal from Pink Floyd, you will also well receive The Sirens of Titan"
“A melancholic record, which seems noticeably influenced by Neil Young and
Bob Dylan… even a Pink Floyd psychedelia is noticeable here”
"Apocalypse Sessions contains the hallmarks of melancholia, desire and transgression that underpins
all John-Paul’s work, inviting the listener into a raw, flawed and poetic dreamtime"
