Experimental is always the word of the day for Condor & Jaybird. For example, “Sleep” ... owes a lot to ’50s- and ’60s-era pop harmonies. Some of Perry and Fosters’ fondness for the song is likely due to the playful flow of thumpery drums and scales that trip around the land of Oz.
But then immediately after that, the song “Time” — which, at the moment, is my own favorite — is a rock opera, making use of the track layering the group is so fond of. The technique might make new listeners expect the band members to number in the double digits. In fact, there are more robust examples of this on the album, but I feel like revealing where qualifies as a spoiler.
