The Slambovian Circus Of Dreams A Box Of Everything on 2LP + Download
A Box of Everything is a compilation of the “Greatest-Hits-you’ve-never-heard” from alt-folk/Americana music pioneers, The Slambovian Circus of Dreams. Their debut release with Red River, A Box of Everything is a generous introduction to the Grand Slambovian world. As the album title suggests, the 2LP-set is jampacked with a broad assortment of classic songs beloved by the band's ever growing international fanbase, along with 3 previously unreleased tracks.
Also known as The Grand Slambovians, the reclusive band’s melodic avant-folk blend that conjures a quirkier Tom Petty or a fuller Buffalo Tom with an exotic instrumental arsenal. The band has drawn comparisons to Petty, The Decemberists, Dylan and Bowie as it features an other-worldly slide mandolin, accordion, cello and styles ranging from dusty Americana ballads to Pink Floydesque cinematic anthems.
Maverick Magazine (UK) called the band “Mightily impressive and hugely original,” while Americana UK gave the album 9 out of 10 stars, saying it was “Love at first spin.” Meanwhile, the New York Times explained that The Slambovian Circus of Dreams’ songs were “imbued with mystical stirrings and idealism.”
Frontman Joziah Longo (vocals, guitar and harmonica) has drawn praise for a voice that is “soothing and bewitching as a snake oil tonic,” and “the entire root system of the Rock Family Tree is embedded in his voice" (The Big Issue/UK). Meanwhile, the band also features guitarist/mandolinist Sharkey McEwen (think the lovechild of David Gilmour and Duane Allman); multi-instrumentalist Tink Lloyd (accordion, cello, uke, theremin, melodica) and Eric Puente (percussion).
