Sweet Billy Pilgrim Motorcade Amnesiacs on 2LP w/ D-Side Etching
Not ones to respect musical boundaries, Sweet Billy Pilgrim have thrown every ounce of their belief and passion into the creative process resulting in the genre spanning excellence of Motorcade Amnesiacs. Frontman Tim Elsenburg’s unique musical worldview has resulted in yet another masterpiece; an album of adventurously inspired melodies, intertwining riffs and eclectic rhythms, heavenly harmonies and thought-provoking lyrics.
The album is a remarkable body of work. Ten years into Sweet Billy Pilgrim’s singular career, their development from electronic/acoustic experimentalism into widescreen accessibility is fully realized on this, their fourth album. The first track to be taken from the album is the groove-laden shuffle of "Coloma Blues," with its buoyant breakdowns and elevating chorus.Further songs such as "Slingshot Grin" lift the listener’s heart, building from bluesy declamations to a euphoric fanfare of horns and strings, while "Just Above Midtown" sees the band fuse their pop sensibilities with swaggering rock groove.
"Longstreth" showcases Elsenburg’s dynamic song writing ability, mixing beautiful harmonies with pounding guitar riffs, the groove-led "We Just Did What Happened And Nobody Came" lodges firmly in the memory long after it ends and "Tyrekickers," revels in co-vocalist Jana Carpenters heart-worn tones. Double vinyl with D-side etching.
