Escape from Society is a fascinating rock album from a most unusual source—craigslist. Singer and multi-instrumentalist Sam Kulik placed ads around the country seeking lyrics or poems he could set to music and record. The resulting album puts forth sneaky pop with avant-garde jazz twists, solid country rock and deep-dish psychedelia with lots of great horn arrangements. As for the words, they are unfailingly interesting, especially when they venture down the less-worn paths of “More Than Your Dog” and “So You Want to Be a Slug.”
