Saddle Creek’s Son, Ambulance return with a pastoral, sun-lit collection of soft psychedelia on their latest album Someone Else’s Deja Vu. The tonal qualities of the songs lie on a continuum somewhere between the folk musings of Mojave 3 and the Incredible String Band. While the songcraft is there, the album is uneven and suffers from a a certain hesitation in being sonically adventurous. The title track and the album closer, “Requiem for a Dying Planet,” are both wonderful gems, though, and if the album had but mirrored their beauty and sustained it, Someone Else’s Deja Vu would be a mesmerizing kaleidoscopic soundtrack for the summer. As it stands, it’s a bit of a disappointment. (Saddle Creek) –DJ Pangburn
