4 stars Who may need dizzy mystics? Well, the band name won't be a hollow promise at all, you should know. Relatively new to the (prog) rock scene this outfit is hailing from Winnipeg, Canada. Kyle Halldorson is going to be the head, that's for sure, while being responsible for song-writing duties, vocals and a proper amount of instruments (assorted guitars, bass, percussions). But then it becomes mystical for the first time, what other members are to expect? Diverse band related images are showing various dudes. Official website and bandcamp page are naming different contributors, the latter Aaron Edgar as the sole partner on the drums regarding the recording process of the debut album. This probably may differ when accomplishing a dizzy live gig, or what?, respectively being on tour.

Anyway, their debut album 'Wanderlost', a set of ten songs, is bursting with strength, energy, dynamics, playfulness, shifting rhythms, twist and turns. Adventurous, music-wise barely anything is out of the question. The collection combines untamed heavy rock ambiance akin to Primus with King Crimson eclecticism and some proper psychedelic vibe. Just trying to vaguely describe the boundaries. A fireworks in composition and implementation. Examplarily I would like to point out the wonderful The Frequent See, Consistent Seas with superfine percussion appearance. And of course the multi-layered title track which leaves nothing to be desired. Chapeau, Kyle! An extraordinary listening pleasure.
