Track Overview:

1. Up in Space (5:13)

Creepingly dark opener with flashes of gritty off-beat vocals, the opener that plays like a closer.

Up tempo country flavor, appealing warm fretwork.

3. Mystery Cowboy (4:59)

John Denver meets Grateful Dead.

Simple melody filler.

5. Insane (6:16) Standout Track

Jammiest of the lot, tight chords and interesting layout

Feels like Eric Johnson is making a guest appearance, solid subtle fretwork.

7. No Words (6:32)

A heartfelt tune with relaxing percussion.

8. Vegas (7:17)

A quirky jamming tune to brink the album to a close.
