"Dead Western reaches out from the Psych-Folk happening of the US Westcoast. "Suckle at the Supple Teats of Time" reaches out with the familiarity of the dark and saddened guitar-based Folk, it surprises with the momentum of life, the comprehension of the beauty in life, confusion and self - it reaches straight to the heart. Troy's voice is like sound from the earth, a whole warm ground. The deepest and most dazing timbre you can imagine - his unique voice is the instrument that makes Dead Western even more special. He sings and shivers, soothes like a lullaby. The frankness of these songs is loose and free, expresses fear, joy and even directed critique. What makes these songs so universal is the reappearing thought they are holding, of other places, people and time. A longing for and awareness of things far from sight. The carrying instrument in Dead Western is the acoustic guitar, one that is patient with the mind singing to it. The gently picked guitar weaves a subtle net, in which playful sounds like violin (played by Extra Life's Caley Monahon-Ward), bass (Jesse Phillips), percussion (Kevin Corcoran), chord organ, kazoo and a singing saw appear here and there and exist comfortably."
