Incredibly tight psych songwriting from the ever-eccentric The Honey Pot. Inside the Whale is built on sickly-sweet harmonies and thick reverb. The hazy west coast lyrics and 60s rock and roll grooves are kept in check by absolutely gorgeous production and arrangement. This is Phil Spector-inspired psychedelia with a West Country twang; available on CD and vinyl LP from Mega Dodo.

6/10 Clinton Staff review, 09 March 2016

If you head down the A1 from Wetherby towards…oh I don’t know Lincoln or somewhere you’ll see a sign pointing to ‘Honey Pot Lane Industrial Estate’. What delightful juxtaposition of images that is.

This the Honey Pot is a ’60’s style psych outfit and according to the illustration on the sleeve one of them is actually a mermaid.  Before even glancing at the press release I figured that this was a Fruits De Mer type band (it's true- they previously released an EP on the label). So as a result what they play is a kind of local band interpretation of great 60’s psych pop with nods towards both Jefferson Airplane and the school run. The title track thinks its a good idea to combine early Pink Floyd with a flute then take the whole thing in a Jethro Tull direction.

They mean well thats for sure and I assume would sound ok whilst enjoying a pint of organic beer at a village hall get together. Problem is, all the way through the album all I can think of is men wearing sandals.
