A kaleidoscopic work that refracts several strains of lysergic rock.

Music beamed in from the sun-blanched 60s and an effortless, beatlesesque melodicism, Parkers effusive songwriting and guitar talents are magnified to the nth degree on this mind-expanding trip. A bounding leap forward in parkers brand of psychedelic pop, Lonerism encapsulates a wide-screen worldview liberally doused with optimism, synthesized tropicalia, hits of dreamy melancholy and an unflinching willingness to experiment without forfeiting big hooks and big pop songs.
