Reviews:

Jumbo Records - Leeds:
"The 8 tracks on this gem of a release are a lush, beautiful, harmony laden yet experimental affair. This is just the kind of independent release we love receiving here at Jumbo. Lots of hidden depths but really memorable too. It brings to mind the Shins and a touch of toy-town psych too..."

Culture Deluxe Magazine:
"Myheadisaballoon‘s Treefella EP haunts the narco-acoustic ambient territories of the ethereal landscape. He is a purveyor of fine psych-pop and sunshine harmonies that are at once wistful and uplifting, continuing as they do, to perpetuate the liminal gene pool already pioneered by acts from The Millennium to The High Llamas, but also at times reminiscent of Buffalo Springfield’s more esoteric experiments in sixties pop. It would be wrong to single out any singular track as the EP is constructed and sequenced in a way in which it has a seductive and highly cohesive feel throughout... anybody with an ear for any of the aforementioned artists will be thrilled with the care and authenticity with which these songs are perfectly executed."

Press Release:

There’s a playful, psychedelic feel to the Treefella EP, from the echoes of pastoral folk in the instrumental track Bwlb, to the acoustic Syd Barrett tinged electronica of Laughter Track.

The title track Treefella drifts evocatively between The Beta Band and the Pacific Ocean Blue of Dennis Wilson, moving on through to the Cluster-like Save Me From My-Self-Ish Heart, returning to the almost West Coast style for the songs Staring@Concrete and the waking dream that is Bookshelf Blues.

Weeks is producing fresh, alternative Lo-Fi pop gems here. Harmonious vocals slipstream beautiful electro-acoustic instrumentation, creating a new psychedelia, which is steeped in electronica and the hazy days of summer.

Track Name: Treefella
It's hard to do what you want to do,

Treefella...

It's hard to do what you want to do.

Are you listening?
Can you hear me?
There's no place that I would rather be
Than sitting up here in my tree.
Broken branches
Building bridges
I've been waiting here impatiently
For you to join me up in my tree.

So...
Throw out your goods
Come to the woods
& find yourself a tree,
& climb up to the top with me.

Oooh weee, I'm up in a tree...

Are you listening?
Can you hear me?
It's nothing like I thought it would be
So I'm hiding up here in my tree.

Chop my head off
Count the rings
& let me know just how old I am
Cos lately I feel like an old man.

You can chop me up
Cut me down
But I'll be back again,
My roots are strong
I stand alone
No time for foolish friends,
My wooden heart
Is strong as oak
No medium density,

So this is where I'll be
In my tree...
Track Name: Save Me From Myself-ish ❤
Save Me From My-Self-ish Heart
Track Name: Staring@Concrete
Everybody's going crazy lately
Peeking out through letterboxes, maybe
Trying to see what is out there in the street
Just Staring@Concrete

Everybody's chasing fame now baby
I don't want to play the game, so maybe
We could find a little place, far from the street
Not Staring@Concrete

I'm not Staring@Concrete

I'm just looking down...

I want anonymity my baby
We were all born to live free, so maybe
We can find a little place down by the sea
Just you & me

Cos I'm not Staring@Concrete

I'm not Staring@Concrete

I'm not Staring@Concrete

I'm just looking down...

No I'm not Staring@Concrete

I'm not Staring@Concrete

I'm just looking down.
Track Name: Just So I Don't Forget
I thought I'd write this down

& put it in a song

Just So I Don't Forget...
Track Name: Bookshelf Blues
Try ending ageing
It's the last enemy
It's another catch for
The old man & the sea
& the catcher is wating
As the daggers they fly
So don't drop the nets yet
As the crows they do cry...
