Sounds like some tripped out Hawaiian beach music honestly. If the whole album's like this I'm totally game

Go tell that long tongue liar, go tell the midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
You tell em that God's gonna cut em down

They somehow always pull through with something I can thoroughly enjoy, and based off the released track I expect this will be no exception.
