-valis Pick of the Week
Our Pick this week should be no stranger to readers of this blog: from San Francisco, The Spyrals! Their new album, Out Of Sight, just dropped last week on Mock Records.
Where prior efforts, an EP and their debut long-player, were decidedly (strongly) psychedelic, this effort finds them less on the mushrooms-and-acid kick and more into beer and whiskey. It's as if they've overdosed more on the entire Sundazed Garage Beat '66 volumes! That's not to say there aren't any signifiers of the mindbending, there are. Plenty. But this effort has a raw, rough, feel and a whip-your-ass attitude. They're in the GARAGE! I like the regression. Substantially. Thanks Jeff, Brandon, and Elliot. Three heads! In every sense.
Watch for a Summer Tour! We are....
You can listen to the archived stream here; or, hear it this Friday, on The Dead Man's Turn Me On, Dead Man show on Live365, where it's heard every Friday at noon eastern time, as well as Mr. Atavist's Sunrise Ocean Bender show, heard every Monday from 1 to 3 am eastern, on WRIR in Richmond, VA.
