Brian Jonestown Massacre

Bringing It All Back Home Again EP

(Which?)

Brian Jonestown Massacre has gone all rootsy on their new EP. Sporting an early Rolling Stones meets Bob Dylan and solo John Lennon on a backporch in a small Southern town vibe, Bringing It All Back Home Again is their rawest, yet most down-home sounding record of their wildly unpredictable career. “Mansion In the Sky” is a dead-ringer for Lennon’s “Working Class Hero,” a good thing in my book. While the 13 minute plus “Arkansas Revisited” is a stoned-out murder ballad with a great bluesy, slacker dobro that conjures up hot days in the deep South.
