8/10 Mike Staff review, 10 July 2013

Salvia Plath is Michael Collins, who has previously recorded under the name Run DMT, and on this album he’s making some deeply psychedelic pop with a pastoral folk twist. By the looks of the cover he’s got quite an expansive band together for this but for the most part they’re quite restrained, although they’re effective in ‘Stranded’ which is like an a capella Morricone with a whistled theme over sinister hummed harmonies for quite a sinister effect.

The most obvious influence on this record is Syd Barrett’s idiosyncratic psych pop, but it’s far from a carbon copy, with Velvet Undergroundy fiddle droning and some swirling BJMisms in the more upbeat parts, some surprising soulful doo-wop pop on ‘This American life’ with Matthew E White-style arrangements, Beatles-pastiche harmonies in ‘Hidden Track’, and a dusty Americana feel overcoming the pastoral whimsy in many places. It’s really classily done and fans of Jacco Gardner and Connan Mockasin are going to be well into this.
