Each song furthers the story the album tells; the journey of a protagonist who is at the mercy of an all-knowing, all-seeing entity hell-bent on destruction. As a result, the album has moments of sinister psychedelic vibes, songs bleeding into the next in an eerie haze.
For being the effort of a two-piece, Fortune Teller has a sonic oomph to it that feels much bigger and vaster. Members J.J. Young and Giovanni Orsini pump out blues-tinged rockers like “Red Eye,” but also use the album to show off long, wandering numbers with multiple movements and instrumental explorations, such as “Face,” which has a run time of 12:33.
