The four song thirty minute EP consists of loose ends that never made their way into Buster Sledge’s other previous or coming larger recording projects. It contains a straight-ahead grassed out barroom-banger (Sit Up Straight) to a crooked George Jones-inspired country-crooner (I Could Be Nowhere (Drinking Nothing)) and finishes off with a wide-open Grateful Dead-esque extended-form jam tune packed with folk music references (Dreamer and Leave the Day).

Live with Kjetil Schjander Luhr performing a score for the silent film "The Wind" (1928) at the International Silent Film Festival in Tromsø in May 2022
Buster Sledge was the first group to record in the recently recently opened Globus Studio of Sjur Lyseid (Little Hands of Asphalt) and his influence from behind the mixing board pushed the band into a slightly-augmented acoustic sound with more something-extra arrangements - a suiting duet with the album art by William Hay that realizes a scene of a distorted lone rider overlooking a large river-valley in impressionistic swaths of color.
Call Home was released via Heilo Records on May 27th 2022.
