Intelligent, honest, self-conscious, psychedelic, Beatles-esque Americana Pop Rock with morose, literary leanings, humor, poetry, heartbreak and drugs.

SBS and his band of four skilled and tasteful musicians are currently promoting the vinyl release of the album and are in the early stages of preparing and recording the follow-up record.
