Wow, these Melbourne’s wizards have been feeding our eyes and ears with their ever-evolving concoction of psych rock substance, for quite a while now. With more than a few handfuls of releases in the past two years, they return with a stunning new full length, and have found a new home in jazz-psych-folk vibes, on an all too perfect fit, in my opinion. Quarters! in unlike anything you’ve heard from them in the past. Without venturing too far from the melted-soaked psych jams we love them for, the seven pieces have conjured up a somewhat meek approach, and their music feels more dreamer and heart-warming than ever.
Those of us who were taken in by the grainy, blow stone of the heady ‘I’m In Your Mind Fuzz’ LP, as well as other early releases, shouldn’t let the term “meek” scare you away from this gem.For the lack of a better word, that is exactly what it is. Everything has been somewhat revamped, and the results are epic.
Quarters! is chock-full of deep, dubbed-out bass lines, coupled with sharp pedal-laden guitars pulses bouncing on midst of lots of strange noises incorporated into their sound collage,creating a heady technicolor fantasy, a desperate and tuneful mess, and I might imagine some vagary of Amorphous Androgynous under Conny Plank look. I would be mad? or stoned
Fans of this group are going to lose their shit over this one, and virgin ears will soon be playing this on repeat for days on end… ’cause Quarters! is overflowing with creativity and good vibes…
