"The young man has at once folky and rather extreme experimental inclinations, and you'll find these two influences blended together in his debut album Guilt Vacation." - The Deli Magazine
"Gryphon Rue's eccentric new album is indie pop at its most imaginative." - PopMatters
"I have to say that this music simply blew my mind. You people are GENIUS. If i had a real label, i'd offer you a home there. this is WAY my mind of music. it's everything i WANT from music, and from art. it's everywhere, yet nowhere familiar. it's new, yet somehow it makes the past seem present, in a way that's intriguing, confounding, and refreshingly real. and the sequence from song to song, it's brilliant. such a baroque journey. It's beautiful." - KRAMER
The sophomore solo effort from Hiss Golden Messenger bassist Scott Hirsch offers a fresh batch of songs that kick back to classic country, tempered with a satisfying dose of psychedelia. Bandcamp Album of the Day Dec 7, 2018
