Almost inaudible vocal harmonies add a psychedelic texture to this track in the chorus. The song builds from the foundation of simple guitar chords overlaid with subtle but intricate finger plucking, adding piano, trumpet, and synthesiser notes without losing its relaxed attitude. With Dope Lemon, Angus Stone shows himself to be an artist with a desire to push into new directions; a very satisfying listen. Well that was hers She said it was just some hoax that she made up To watch people cry Yeah she whispered to me softly Well do you want me?

This is becoming the Dope Lemon way. However, like you were awoken by you annoying mother on the weekend, no sooner have you been shaken you roll back over into your dream state as the banjo fades into its own effect driven soft riffing.

Throughout the track other instruments fade in and out, from eerie lead guitar and a slowly pulsating bass to whirling synth and organ sounds.
Perhaps most profoundly though is the reaffirmation that Dope Lemon is the voice of a man. The Way You Do emphasises an electronic beat, and bluesy, almost honky-tonk piano riffing, while the vocals are resigned to the background of this track. Like the previous track, this is backed up with a steady beat and smooth bass line and the sound of seemingly far away guitars chiming. Melodies that seem to slow down time and space along with the pastiche technique of redefining spontaneous jams into distilled gems. Where I stand Let's go steady Let's make a plan Marinade on that for a while Yeah She wanted to die by a river She wanted the tide to come up and drag her away So that when she's dreamin' She can watch the tree line fall away She used to draw rainbow faces in the sand But the rainbow made the face sad Had bits of foam coming out the bottom of its mouth It's kinda funny that way Oh do you want me? It was a period of fresh reconnection for the band, the original rehearsals delayed after Angus had a snowboarding accident that forced them to postpone their tour. Oh where I stand Let's go steady Let's make a plan Marinade on that for a little while Yeah Show more.
This development is indicative of how the album progresses, with Stone widening his musical canvas in the second half of the record: diverse instrumentation and subtly layered arrangements becoming more of a feature. From here on in the album starts to disintegrate in the most enjoyable, psychedelic way, and congeals itself back together after an entirely relaxing and trance-like headtrip. Angus Stone has evolved into one of the most genuine and undiluted songwriters. Title track Honey Bones takes an exotic excursion, employing a tabla drum beat and constantly jangling sitar in the background to paint a meditative backdrop, which is only further layered by long, drawn out bass notes, and repeating guitar lines. .

When expressed through the characteristically laidback guise that listeners would be familiar with from his work with sister, Julia, Dope Lemon makes for sweet slacker rock in the slightly off kilter vein of Mac Demarco. Finally, Best Girl is a slow, acoustic, and at some times, plodding finale, that never quite manages to wake you from its dreamy state. These all combine to give the song the effect of melting slowly around you. Log in to vote +1 votes 1 helpful 0 unhelpful Showing all 1 comments Please or if you want to be able to add a comment.

At times it sounds like a young guitarist who has tried to apply every guitar effect in his arsenal, but with a beautiful polish and direction that comes with an experienced songwriter like Angus Stone.
The album probably deserved a more decisive ending. A slow-and steady drum beat is offset with a constant syncopated beeping sound. How Many Times presents a dark and broody sonic pallet from the beginning, using reverb, delay, and palm muting to give the rhythm guitar an almost synthesiser-like background sound. Your comment: or to comment on this album. It was a long road to recovery for Angus, not just learning to walk again but wading back to the surface through a heavy sedated period of time in hospital, which was also the pre-cursor…or perhaps the training…for the new journey that was coming with his writing. . .
