Caleb Landry Jones is a continual creator. The Texan-born star found fame as an actor - youll recognise him from key roles in X-Men: First Class,Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, amongst others - but music is perhaps his first love, and his source of greatest comfort. A chance encounter with famed auteur Jim Jarmusch brought him into the orbit of Sacred Bones, and the stalwart independent released Calebs 2020 debut album The Mother Stone. Psychedelic in a defiantly non-retro way, this indulgent, freewheeling trip won critical acclaim, but masked a secret - hed already finished another album.

Filming alongside Tom Hanks in dystopian themed Finch, Caleb found himself writing during those long evenings after the shoot in locations across New Mexico, idling away his hours by focusing on creativity. I need it, he says, Ive tried working without it. On one acting job, I intentionally didnt bring a guitar to try and do it without music... but that didnt last long. I need to create something - it could be a drawing, it could be a song - because otherwise I feel like Im wasting time. Which is something I do plenty of on my own! With his creative faculties burning, Caleb knew he had to get straight back into the studio when filming stopped. Linking with the same cast who formed The Mother Stone, he resumed his partnership with producer Nic Jodoin, based out of the elegant Valentine Recording Studio in Los Angeles. A studio steeped in history - everyone from Bing Crosby to Frank Zappa worked there - he interrupted mixing sessions for his own debut album in order to focus on something different.

Gadzooks Vol.1is unlike anything youve heard before - comparisons range from Skip Spences fractured masterpiece Oar through to skewed troubadour Robyn Hitchcock, viaJohn Lennons black moods on The White Album and Frank Zappas caustic surrealism. Recording to tape, Caleb would hack away at each take, re-assembling the songs like Escher diagrams. Its like when youre swimming in the pool, he smiles, and youre doing a bit of butterfly, and then that gets old after a while. So then you start doing breaststroke, and then that gets old after a while. I think its just a reaction from the place where we were before.

Part of a flood-tide of creativity - as its title suggests, a second half to this album is already on the horizon - Gadzooks Vol.1 is thrilling, shocking, and wonderfully entertaining. Each song starts and finishes in entirely unique places, often totally divorced from each other. Im trying to write something very simple, he says, And it gets really abstract because I dont know any other way.
