Live at The Trunkspace on July 18, 2023 CDr

“After a year playing the codeine country review, Caleb took his laurels to the tire fire. His newly formed sextet (billed as a quintet?) closed out a quaint Trunk Space night of guitar loops, vocal arabesque, and Mel Blanc inspired drone, with their improv city-sleeze. No solos, just an egalitarian collective conscious burning at 100% until all that was left were fumes. Completely blindsided – not every day do you get to see a group so raw but assured in their infancy. As they packed up, Mitchell Brown exclaimed, “I love jazz!,” codifying how we all felt. Satisfaction and a vague question mark hung in the air, knowing the moment had passed. “You can’t stop progress,” and Caleb is rarely one to repeat himself anyway. But this disc is frozen in time for the Moone heads. A document of Phoenix 2023, or was it 2013? A group pleading ignorance to the city’s gentrification, commodification, little sense of where they’ve been, and no plan for a next time.” Seth Kasselman

"The lure of the lament is certainly the guiding light here and Dailey ably takes the inherent ramble of the songs and slows them down to a twilight crawl. Merging the current crop of Cosmic Country with its more ambient tributary, the album churns its strange magic with a disparate, but nonetheless adept crew." - Raven Sings The Blues

"...a delightful, lo-fi collection of ramshackle covers in the vein of artists like Lambchop or early Bright Eyes." - Norman Records

"...Dailey makes his own kind of Western music—wide open but bracingly intimate." - Aquarium Drunkard

"Dailey keeps things at a woozy, syrup-thick tempo, his low voice sounding like a 45rpm record accidentally played at 33 1/3. Though the songs unfurl slowly and simply, there’s plenty of space to weave hypnotic details into the mix." - Dusted Magazine
