Album Review

Reviewed 2019-05-21
Bluesy fuzzed-out psych rock from a swashbucklin’ Melbourne five-piece featuring two members of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. A really solid album front to back. It’s hard to pick individual tracks, but start with 4, 6, 7, 5, or 11. All tracks FCC clean. RIYL: King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Pond, Malachai

1. (3:23) Driving fuzzed out guitar, harmonica, great vocal melodies
2. (3:14) Swaying blues rock with passionate vocals
3. (3:40) Jammy with bouncy drums, flitters of piano, and strummy guitar
*4. (3:17) High-energy with raw vocals and insistent ringing guitars
*5. (4:00) Slow-building rootsy piano ballad punctuated by crescendos of fuzzy guitar, synthesizer, and crashing percussion
*6. (3:40) Swingy piano rock with slide guitar elements and great vocals
*7. (3:09) Feisty rocker with dense layers of guitars and standout solos
8. (3:44) Yearning rock ballad with a catchy chorus and a touch of country
9. (4:23) Midtempo psych rock
10. (3:44) Scorching blues rocker with aggressive guitars, wild harmonica, and snarled vocals
*11. (3:58) Frenzied blues rock with psychedelic sound effects. Attitude and spunk with lots of rhythm and tempo changes
