press: music for driving & film

twangy, dusky masterpiece…a lock for one of the best albums of 2019.– New York Music Daily

Aside from the excellence of the playing it’s the atmosphere conjured up by the tunes which really makes an impact. From the start on No Destination we’re in desert territory with Menegon’s guitar rippling over fuzzy rhythm and battering drums. The effect is fully blown on the following Dream Of The Desperado, a lengthy meditation suffused with slide and pizzicato guitar over an insect buzz of percussion reminding the listener of that weird hybrid of Zen Buddhism and Westerns that was David Carradine in Kung Fu. But perhaps the best evocation here is in the fly blown and sun scorched Yuma Interlude where the guitar is almost tearful. Listen to this and surely your head will be infused with images from movies going back to High Noon through Morricone up to Tarantino. It’s quite spine chilling. –Blabber ‘n’ Smoke

Dream of the Desperado comes across as a mashup of rapt Japanese temple music mingled with slow-burn Black Lodge guitar that finally coalesces as a creepy slide guitar blues.– New York Music Daily

The Reverend is a guitar man and his music is inherently guitar-driven. Its presence, while always very much there in the moment, is expertly blended and always seems to know when to pull back so that the whole of the song, aka ‘the big picture’, retains its maximum integrity, even if the guitar isn’t always the hero of the tune. – Statik Noize

No Destination moves like a fever dream. Its rise and fall dances with a melodic guitar as the blistering day turns to sacred night. Through measures of wavering chords that wash against the stanza’s canvas, and a drum beat the grooves with punctuated syncopation, the song becomes an aching story. It’s easy to imagine a black Cadillac driving down a lonely road with a destination unknown. As it finally peels out of focus, we start to wonder, was it ever really there at all? Skope
