"Step inside a Lychchian 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"

BOYS BY GIRLS
"The band take their name from the classic Kurt Vonnegut novel about time travel and their musical inspiration from Let It Bleed-era Stones–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, mostly quiet retro record, which seems noticeably influenced by Neil Young and
Bob Dylan… Even a Pink Floyd-psychedelia is noticeable here”
