Warble Womb, where it's warm a shelter from the storm. Three years since the last Dead Meadow release the band has had line-up changes, continued their rigorous touring schedule and worked with legendary artists like Dave Davies (of the Kinks) ... Members of the band have made solo records and Jason Simon has continued his country-Dylan-inspired Old Testament into new ground and new recordings.

Steve Kille has continued recording artists like Kim Deal and ex-GBV alumni Jim Greer along with running a label and playing bass in a recent incarnation of fellow tripper Steve McBean version of Pink Mountaintops. Finally and most importantly we have seen a return of original drummer Mark Laughlin who in 1998 co-founded Dead Meadow and on this 75 minute album we hear him again on a studio record the first time in eleven years. Dead Meadow has long made these journeys into fantasy and mystic rock pop.

They have grown up and even became kings and with this new release they have come back to their roots. The three original players self-producing on their own time and on their own dime they give us the soundtrack of their lives and classic tunes that will remind us what made them unique so many years ago. Influenced by reggae and dub along with the classic rock riffs they wear proudly on their sleeves we have a perfect representation of what stew of a vision has always been heavy psych pop that can make the listener groove and dance.

But beyond the sound the band has done something even more timely and important here and that is to add a soundtrack to this new record enthusiast times. "We  love everything inspired and here in our comfort space our womb this is our ode to what inspires us."..No matter what dark negative forces there are in the outside world in here in this shelter we can be safe and inspired as the young of heart of this generation.
