    I was playing this album recently when my wife walked into the room and asked if this was a new Bevis Frond album, making me realise why I was enjoying it so much, as it displays the same mix of guitar frenzy, introspection and quality songwriting. Not only that but the vocal are certainly reminiscent of the Frond in their style of delivery, whilst analogue synths and a warm drum sound only add to the comparison.

    Originally formed in the early nineties, the band reformed in 2002 resulting in this album which is brimming with swirling psych magic played and produced by Greg Curvey and Mark Lofgren.

    After the reverbed and phased psychedelia of “Baby Moon”, the album lifts off with some dextrous guitar playing that levitates “Device” high in the clouds, a rippling flute adding shards of light to the tune. A poppier Steve Hillage vibe is created on the title track, the drums well up in the mix as the guitar drives through the song with reckless abandon, held together by huge washes of synths that reverberate across the room.

    Consistently strong throughout, fans of Tyrnaround, Dukes Of Stratosphear, Reefus Moon, or Bevis Frond will not be disappointed, as the album is a hook-laden psych-pop classic with a wonderfully rich and warm production that tumbles out of the speakers with lysergic glee.

    On the drifting “Whereever Sends” a west-coast feel is magically invoked, the instruments dancing around each other like sunlight on crystal, full of blissful thoughts. Finally the band take us home with the floatation tank happiness of “Goodnight” the perfect way to close this softly spoken trip inside your head. (Simon Lewis)
