Barn Nova

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Barn Nova does have songs with lyrics, but the atmosphere is so off-the-cuff that it wouldn't be hard to convince you that this admixture of space rock and rustic country-folk-influenced sounds was put together more or less on the fly.
