5.0 out of 5 stars How have I missed this Gem? 8 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Recorded between September 2006 and May 2007 but has not been heard by me until just recently. The first thing I notice about this brilliant piece of music is the quality of the production by Tim Green, who also plays guitars, piano and synthesizer on the album. Everything sounds crisp and clear and the instrumental separation is a delight. The whole album has a San Fransisco early 1970s feel to it throughout. A Sunday afternoon sunny day feel good listen. The album is, in the main, acoustic laden. Giving it a flavor of folk. There is some wonderful electric guitar, lovely tone but never overstated. There are moments that remind me of Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells and 'Obscured By Clouds/ Meddle' era Pink Floyd. Much of the synthesizer work reminds me of Gong's 'You'. The CD booklet is a 2 page flimsy affair but gives you all the information you need apart from the lyrics. The whole album weighs in at 45 minutes.

4.0 out of 5 stars new psych hippies 4 Jan 2008
By Chris Sneeringer - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
although not quite the direction i wanted them to take in comparison to their debut work, it's still a great listen for a Saturday in the Spring. Buy it if you are into the new psych rock movement, akin to the folksy side of the early '70s hard rock bands.
4.0 out of 5 stars Little Kingdom ... by Jenell Kesler 18 Sep 2012
By R. Kesler - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Little Kingdom by Citay is so hypnotically and atmospherically drenched that one begins to feel they're squeezing high quality lysergic acid out of each and every note, gently washing you like a child with a wobbly head, one filled with fever dreams, wakeful dreams ... where shimmering moon beans morph into dancing skeletons at the foot of a bed that's floating just above the floorboards, while the walls breathe of their own accord, ebbing like the chest of a sleeping lover, and tethered curtains ride the breeze of a pitch black star filled sky. And just when you think you can't stand anymore, the big ol' smiling moon eases up to your window and says "Howdy," like it's all the most natural thing in the world to happen.

Little Kingdom gives you nothing to hold onto, it's all about letting go, it's about what can be said between the lines, or within a nod and a wink. Citay could easily be dismissed as creating post hippy California neo-psychedelic trip music, and while it certainly is all that, it's much much more. Little Kingdom is filled with instrumental harmonies, and for the most part, this outing is an instrumental breath of fresh air, one filled with smiles, grins and an assuredness that in this moment everything is, and forever will be ... perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Found it by accident on Pandora- Really love it 5 Dec 2011
By Alan Barrow - Published on
"A Riot of Color" was a Pandora suggestion. Gave it a try, really liked it. Became curious and checked out the other tracks.

I don't know how to describe the music, but it's captivating and I'll be checking out their other work.
