This is the debut album of Alien Carnival. The tunes are folk tunes with a psychedelic influence. So, it is Folkadelic music.


Alien Carnival is a project headed by Bentz Kirby of Columbia, South Carolina. The songs are based in folk music with a slight psychedelic influence. Hence we call it Folkadelic music.

From Patrick Wall of Free Times:

Alien Carnival strikes me as less a band and more a kind of amorphous hivemind, a loose collective of musicians for whom music-making its tantamount to merry-making. Its songs, loose and tuneful aggregations of bluegrass and country and jam-rock, meander like a group conversation, players trading guitar licks and drum fills with an easy back-and-forth. It’s limber, loosey-goosey stuff, like Waylon and Willie cracking open some beers and woodshedding with the Dead’s rhythm section.

And from P Ward of Free Times

Columbia bluegrass-country jam band Alien Carnival is a loose collective of members who all play in other local bands, some even in several other bands. From time to time, they bring their party to Art Bar and other local venues, singing about aging, drugs and rock ‘n roll; they rock the harmonica, with plenty of guitar and weathered vocals to match. Fans of a variety of influences ranging from Neil Young to Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson will appreciate cracking open a beer or three and grooving to the sounds of Americana.
