After what seems like a super-prolific year with three previous releases to this which still stay on my own player, these four talented fellas from London have found time to write and record another fantastic studio full length, entitled Semper Fi when I was really digging on their last Easy Listening , and considering it to was one of the most cohesive, psych-shoegazing sound collages I’d heard from them , with their chemistry on full bloom, this new record attack my senses in so many different ways and from so many angles, that it’s hard to believe they made another record that would even above that.
At first glance, Semper Fi may sound like a polished extension of the aforementioned, but when you travel deeper into this new long player, you will realize that this is a completely new.
Even since the first minutes show some newly added elements of psych to the mix, with an slow creeping guitar swelling , equipped with crackling percussion , and soft strides somber voices, which gradually introduces new colors to it’s fine palette setting the rest of the record’s surprises quite handsomely..
Sincerely this record made the hairs of my arm stand up straight. If you aren’t a fan of this group, I guess it’s because you just haven’t bothered to check them .
As always, you know , for free downloads of band´s EPs and albums simply just have to register in Flower Power Records and will have everything for free, ” Supersonic” Mark will takes care of it …
