'With their influences rooted firmly in British 6o's psychedelia.
Midlands band Split Sofa's sixth album is full of deceptively lightweight
Songs that impinge on your consciousness like hazy whispers.
Geoff Barton Classic Rock Magazine Issue Sept 2012-
 
'The music on here is kinda laid back, to the point of horizontal;
It's very summery and melodic. Split sofa are a bit of a throwback.
They love the sixties and are content to stay there, playing psychedelic
Rock and singing about the summer of love,'
Martin Howell,

A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS SCENE
 
 
An album which as really inspired myself and my writing is
Caravan's 1970 release 'If I could do it all over again I'd
do it all over you. Caravan followed up their eponymous
 debut with the cryptically titled
 If I Could Do It All Over Again I'd Do It All
Over You in the fall of 1970. If I Could Do It All Over
Again contains significant progressions over the first album.
These include the intricacy with which compositions are
sculpted around some of the finest instrumental
 improvisation in British rock at the time -- or arguably
since. Caravan's uncanny ability to create a montage that
effortlessly manoeuvres through acoustic folk and electric
 progressive rock is best exemplified on the "With an Ear
 to the Ground" suite. The extended instrumental passages
weave in and out of each other, creating a hypnotic and
otherwise psychedelic soundscape thatwould become a trademark of the European progressive rock
 movement. Another epic, "For Richard" quickly found solid standing as the Caravan live performance closer for
decades after first appearing on this album. Juxtaposed
 against these pieces are several shorter works, which in essence clear the palette for the longer ones.
The title track,as well as "Hello, Hello" are perfect examples of how Caravan was able to one-up many of their
 progressive contemporaries, creating shorter and more accessible songs for radio airplay -- resulting in a guest
 appearance on BBC TV's Top of the Pops program.
