“While the latest track to be released from Set Your Lightning Fire Free hits the ear as a kaleidoscopic, trippy gem that shines as brilliantly in 2015 as it would’ve in a Berkeley drug den during the Summer of Love, there’s so much going on from start to finish that you can’t help but lose yourself in Falana’s crowing or Mike Amari’s pugilistic way with the drum kit.”
