This new EP has Oddfellows trademark tracks of immaculate sophistication. Spotless vocals, in distinguished songs, that send out waves of love, consideration and care, without ever getting tacky or slimy. Bramwell remains the British singer closest to Brian Wilson’s heritage, without really striving for it as he sticks to his Sussex, England roots.
Penny Black Music

A memorable work of art.
