"There's two kinds of people living in this galaxy," sings Kacy Anderson, high and lonesome. "Everybody else and me." And yet, Anderson is one half of the duo Kacy & Clayton, which means there is at least one other like-minded soul in her world.

The world is psychedelic folk music, groovier than a Laurel Canyon thrift shop and sounding something like a lysergic-minded Cowboy Junkies. Anderson and guitarist Clayton Linthicum are second cousins hailing from the Wood Mountain uplands of southern Saskatchewan. Their debut LP from 2015 was titled Strange Country; the new follow-up album, The Siren's Song, is equally self-descriptive.

Produced by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, the nine-song set is a homage to English folk-revival balladry and trippy soft-rock summer-of-love fare. Lyrics reflect youthful alienation. Kacy & Clayton seek an audience of fellow magic people, far out as you please.
