Praise for New Rays From an Old Sun
"Given this generous slab of pure pop perfection, it's only natural that the emphatic arrangements and extra attention to detail should accentuate the accessibility factor, which, in turn, is naturally primed for perfection. Compared to much of what passes as pop these days, This is a fine turn (turn turn) indeed."
"New Rays from an Old Sun has no shortage of lived experience and is one hell of a piece of great art. The album features all the elements that made Turn Turn Turn’s debut stand out in the genre, amplified to create an even larger-sounding musical tapestry. Reminiscent of the Laurel Canyon psychedelic folk and cosmic country scene of the ‘60s and ‘70s, it too is destined to provide the soundtrack to many a great road trip."
“Like the title of the CD suggests – it’s like new rays from an old sun. It’s a de-mystification of mainstream music because this is what should be pounding in people’s ears. There’s a quality to it all since even though it’s driven by pop music it stirs the blues, whisks progressive rock identities & whips up folksier tunes (“Schisandra” & “Acceleration Dreams”) sound like The New Seekers with the late-great Judith Durham.”
"A warm '70s Los Angeles breeziness in their three-part, Fleetwood Mac-ian vocal parts, but it's updated here with more of a psychedelic paisley-pop sheen, plus edgier and more emotionally wrecked…truly an album to celebrate."
"The new album is a triumph ... finding plenty of joyous moments to celebrate. Every song works flawlessly, such as the catchy and wryly blunt title track, New Rays From an Old Sun, and the cathartic realism of 7 Kids."
“Fine vocal harmonies, a pinch of Soul, country elements, and subtle psychedelia… potential chart toppers with lyrical depth. 8.5 out 10 stars.”
