4 stars Swedish band BARRETT ELMORE was formed in 2008, initially as a trio playing a rough variety of blues. The threesome soon found psychedelic music more interesting to explore, however, and from 2009 and onwards that has been their choice of stylistic expression, an alteration that also saw Mikaela Eriksson join the band. "Woodlands" is their debut album, and was released by the US label Trail Records in the spring of 2012.

Gentle and careful psychedelic progressive rock is what Barrett Elmore provides on their debut album "Woodlands", dampened ethereal themes and movements with a distinct mystical atmosphere, with occasional lapses of darker tinged moods applied to good effect. I'd single out fans of early Pink Floyd and The Doors to be something of a key audience, and those with a soft spot for contemporary bands such as The Future Kings Of England might also want to investigate this fine Swedish quartet.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
