Wednesday November 6th
NIGHT BEATS (Seattle WA)
Trouble in Mind/Burger Records/Reverberation Appreciation Society
Any number of bands cite 60’s Texas psych as an influence, but rarely does a group actually capture what made those bands special. The Night Beats perfectly captures and modernizes the hallucinogenic and exhilaratingly demonic aura of bands like The 13th Floor Elevators and Golden Dawn. With blazing guitar work and a razor sharp rhythm section Danny Lee Blackwell and company mutate conventional chords & progressions into a mind-blowing sonic sprawl
ORGAN EYES (Ottawa, ON)
Bruised Tongue Records
This prolific Ottawa songwriting duo have put out three full-length releases this year alone, with no signs of slowing down. Marine Tantrum’s title does well to reflect its fine balance of bangers and mash, but gets the chronology backwards. Out of the gate, “British Grafitti”, “Teenage Kingdomdom” and “Jesus Fish” throw fits like angry mall punx, before mellowing out later tracks like “Needle Beach” and “Tumble Dry” with submerged distortion, wavy falsetto and effortless indifference. Closer “Zola Saw”, which most closely resembles Multibody’s teen-dreamy vibration, is spacious and drawn-out, playing with pseudo-naïveté. Knowing and not knowing, it negotiates between youth and maturity, light and heavy, resolving nothing. - Weird Canada
