|So Many Wizards / Heavy Vision|
|Add Date:||2017-09-08|| ||Pull Date:||2017-11-10|| |
|Week Ending:||24 Sep||17 Sep|
So Many Wizards walk a fine line between garage rock and dream-pop. Los Angeles-based four-piece offer up some gnarly riffs, but they’re less indebted to Matt Pike than they are to Ty Segall. Heavy Vision a neo-psychedelic release. This record, is full of bright, chiming indie numbers that positively drip with homages to earlier pioneers like Syd Barrett and The Byrds.|
