When this blog was in its early days I have made a post about Sisters Of Your Sunshine Vapor, a Detroit-based psych band, for their debut self titled album released in 2009 (you can check it here). Well since then I have a special kind of love for this band. And when they contacted me about their new album "Spectra Spirit" I got really excited. While I was listening to their new album, the excitement got bigger. And it's still growing every time I get back to it. So you have my apologies if Ι won't sound objective but this album is fuckin' great.
The album features nine tracks of dark, mellow, fuzzy, sometimes heavy, aggressive in a way, bluesy psych rock. Hell of description, don't you think? They managed to create amazing soundscapes and a very dark (almost gloomy) atmosphere. The songs are connected perfectly with each other and the fact that it's recorded in analog equipment is a plus in record's feeling. I also loved the layered vocals as well as the lyrics which moving in surreal, meditative themes. If (under a gun) I had to pick some favorites, these would be "Untitled", "Black Mind" and "Sweet Girl Insanity".
I don't know how many of you have already checked SOYSV but I think is time to do it. "Spectra Spirit" is a well-written, well-performed and well-recorded work which I have no doubt that it'll please you. If you have the chance to catch them live, don't miss it (you can check their tour dates in the website). Their shows are an audio-visual excellence.
The album will be out in a few days (11th November). You can stream it or pre-order the vinyl from their website.
