Jason Pierce about late legend Dr. John playing on closing track ‘Cop Shoot Cop‘:
“I just wrote a letter, sent the track and his response was immediate. He said “absolutely, absolutely, love it”. It was where he wanted to be. I was completely in awe of him and his
playing and everything he put to it. I could hardly speak, to be honest. Not that I needed
to speak much. It didn’t add anything little or less to the proceedings. It was an amazing
session, amazing to do.”

Pitchfork about the album: “That’s what ranks ‘Ladies and Gentlemen We are Floating
in Space’ alongside the best art: Jason Pierce and a big band that included his ex-girlfriend
and a whole slew of people that soon became his ex-bandmates faithfully render the cycle
of loving anything– the innocent exuberance, the bitter rejection, the episodic denial, in 70 perfect minutes.”
Full review here. Score: 10/10.
