“4 out of 5 stars!… Dilley’s typically quiet vocal gives a beautiful, gloomy feel to the songs. It Makes Me Smaller sounds like it could be a Postal Service while remaining inventive with his sound.” “compiles a huge assortment of audio clips and builds them into what’s probably the high point of the albuM” -Anna Wiegenstein, The Daily Iowan Newspaper
“…Psychedelic – Folk Pieces – Think Syd Barret and Neutral Milk Hotel” -Chris Riemenschneider, Minnesota Star Tribune
“… a must see live show! Multi-instrumental band, with video projections reflecting off each members hazmat suit, cant wait to blog this” Dr. Tony Shore, Obvious Pop
Unable to stay away from the studio and in response to the demand from his solid fan base, Jake Dilley went into the studio to satisfy the fans thirst. While the hype and speculation surrounding the upcoming release of Jake Dilley’s 3D – Imax experience “T.R.I.P.S” has growing anticipation, Dilley gives us the Detour EP. Detour – a deviation from Jake’s mind-bending psychedelic, is a hard-hitting indie-rock anthem. The dynamics throughout the album offer a journey, another route and DETOUR for the listener to experience The Color Pharmacy!
