CRITIC REVIEWS

The Observer
One-man band Ripley Johnson casts an unashamedly sunny eight-song spell.
100
Mojo

Within its quintessential 40-minute-album parameters, Summerlong inexorably sucks the listener into its groove.

Uncut
There's not a weak moment to be found.

Exclaim!

While the minimalism of 2019's Rose City Band was a little more straightforward, Summerlong dares to wander, unravelling melodic possibilities like a slow-blowing breeze.

80
The Sydney Morning Herald

While it may be strange to hear Johnson’s instantly recognisable guitar tones in this new context, Summerlong is a delightful success.

AllMusic

No longer masked by layers of texture, Summerlong allows Johnson to showcase his gifts for songwriting and psychedelic wandering in equal measure.

Mojo pulling no punches in their review.

I might like this more if every song wasn't so jammed out, but honestly its still fun. I could see a bunch of hipster hippie types getting down to these grooves. Expect to come back to this more.

I’ve tried like 4 times now. It’s just generic country rock with a bunch of noodling.

A vibe I’ve been searching for.
