Rocket D.I.Y. is the home-recorded follow up to 2003's Kenny and Beth's Musakal Boat Rides. This time around, instead of a collection of songs spanning several years, Rocket D.I.Y. contains 12 new songs, all written and recorded over a period of weeks. Acoustic guitar and piano based songs have been embellished with accordion, banjo, electronics and a smattering of samples. Collective drummers OnTheFly and Captain Geeko deliver an altogether new punch, with Pip Dylan's pedal steel adding that final twang. Rocket D.I.Y. can best be described as a recollection of a hectic year. From the cosmic highs to the lunar lows, come world-weary themes of age consciousness and humdrum household chores, sitting alongside wide-eyed travel adventures and far-fetched yarns. With its scratchy sentiments, anthemic yearnings and downright nonsense, D.I.Y., like Boatrides before it, takes you on a Neukian journey possibly not as far as the stars, but one you'll want to take again.

The wee beardie man's great! Anderson puts the voice of a saint to songs so fine they can only have come from the devil --Esquire

Currently influencing a generation of musical upstarts, King Creosote is a beneficent ruler of the folk --The List, 50 Best Scottish Bands of All Time
