"Festus, I Am Not Out of My Mind" offers a nice teaser for Half-handed Cloud's latest idiosyncratic pop effort, Flying Scroll Flight Control.
 

On 10 June, Half-handed Cloud, aka Berkeley-based pop eccentric John Ringhofer, will be releasing its sixth album Flying Scroll Flight Control on Asthmatic Kitty. Premiering here on PopMatters, the compact ditty “Festus, I Am Not Out of My Mind” is a nice teaser of the Sufjan Stevens-aided album, a slice of idiosyncratic pop on which sun-kissed melodies and Ringhofer’s falsetto vocals stand out as much as the quirky instrumentation.
