Glaze of Cathexis - 2015 - The Amorphous Infinity
Quality: 5 out of 5
Trip-O-Meter: 4.25 out of 5
The best psychedelic rock album we've sent out into the world so far. The past few albums have revelled in full-on 60's psychedelia, and that's not forgotten, but with this album, you'll hear a modernized, shoegazed, Sonic Youth-thunking conceptual cycle about the search for, and reclamation of the human soul in the grinding gears of modern society. It's prog rock lyrics set to compact, catchy ditties brimming with far out drums and wires. Jazzmasters, Casinos, Les Pauls, Strats, and bizarre Fernandes concoctions all sent into the slipstream for vistas of guitar noise. Take a tour of the title track, Labyrinthian Alchemy, and Cadmium Glow for the quick fly-by. Have a listen at Soundcloud, buy the thing for a paltry $2 at Bandcamp (with a vinyl option likely coming soon), or if you're unfortunately destitute, have a look at the comments for this post. We need to be sustainable, but we want to be heard! We may be delusional, but we are confident that we are musical shamen looking for a way to reclaim the soul!
