about

‘Nothing prepares you for the standout track, “Jerusalem”, which provides the missing evolutionary link between Barry McGuire’s “Eve Of Destruction” and Nick Cave in best biblical mode.’

- Uncut Magazine

'A black-magical Devendra Banhart in a different time/place long before this freakfolk thing hit, the English bard Simon Finn released Pass The Distance, a sprawling, fractured, dense brew of dark acid-folk... The album’s centerpiece is “Jerusalem”, a six-minute, shiver-inducing crucifixion-of-Jesus exorcism that anticipates Current 93 as well as a bevy of lesser apocalyptic folkies. By its ecstatic, organ smashed final strains, you can’t but help imagining Finn sweaty and in a trance,
his guitar splintered and speaking different six-string languages.”

- Pitchfork
