UK Release date
US Release date
  1. 8.0 |   DIY

    Strange, warm tracks that tug on familiar melodic heartstrings
    Read Review

  2. 8.0 |   All Music

    Easily his most accessible material, there's still a lot of uncomfortable emotional and sonic wreckage to sift through. Peeling back the layers of grime and giving listeners a chance to sift through it for themselves makes I Have to Feed Larry's Hawk feel like a debut from this already storied songwriter

  3. 8.0 |   Clash

    A bare-bones, diary-like project, bouncing between melancholy and optimism

  4. 8.0 |   The Skinny

    Takes on a new, more ambient and impressionistic – though not wholly unfamiliar – direction, spurred on by a move back to San Francisco and the spectre of addiction

  5. 7.5 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    A more gentle work of perspective and introspection
    Read Review

  6. 7.0 |   Uncut

    Psychedelic beguilement a la Syd Barrett and Wyatt-ish pastoralism bent into eccentric shapes figure, but variety is key. Print edition only

  7. 6.5 |   The 405

    There are some aural delights here, but also too many instantly forgettable tracks

  8. 6.0 |   Mojo

    Ducking and diving between ivories and six-string, his reedy-voice makes for a Syd Barrett attempting Todd Rundgren's Something/Anything? record, full of compulsive tunes, but ever off-centre. Print edition only

  9. 6.0 |   God Is In The TV

    Churlish it would be to cast scorn on a man working through something, but there is little to get your teeth into. Some songs are mere vignettes, other prolonged wig outs, coming across as part Kurt Vile, part Sonic Youth

  10. 5.5 |   Earbuddy

    This is so completely different than what we heard on the last collaboration with Ty Segall or Cate Le Bon

  11. 5.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    It may not pack the punch as potently as swaggering White Fence, but at least Tim Presley’s still making records which stand out from the norm and show off his quirks
