3 stars Really interesting debut album of Bostonian band. Music is quite eclectic and not very usual for American band: mix of neo-psychedelic experimental rock, Krautrock rhythms,electronic loops and aesthetics and post-rock ambient sound and some characteristic guitars.

Songs all are very various and in separate compositions you can hear more Can-like influences, or freaky psychedelic vocals, acoustic guitars and post punk atmospheres. Besides of some aural post-rock external attributes, music by its nature is heavily psychedelic, usually down or mid tempo, with accent not on complexity or musicianship technique,but on hypnotic rhythms and krautish aesthetics.

There are too many fillers to name this album really great release, but in many moments its music really attracts by its freshness and some great post-punk atmosphere of late 70-s.

Really interesting debut of not very known band, could attract psychedelic prog and krautrock fans, hardly the release for post-rock lovers though.

My rating is 3+.
