Scott Reynolds & the Steaming BeastAdventure Boy (Boss Tuneage)
Former All member and Greg Ginn cohort Scott Reynolds employs Drag the River, Steven Drozd of the Flaming Lips, and Mercury Rev's Dave Fridmann for an eccentric pop Adventure that defies its reference points. From woozy country ("Angel") to jazz-pop ("Scaffold Lick"), the only constant is Reynolds' rough voice and ever-present, lighthearted humor, both of which have aged well.
