|More diverse, ugly, magnetic, and surf related creativity from New Zealand's primo envelope pushers. I have a soft spot in my heart for these guys & gal. They create some of the gloomiest and ugliest music since Blue Cheer, not that there is any similarity. But, I like their music. There is something special going on here, something that taps into your soul. When they flaunt their surf influences, it can be magical, silly, ludicrous, and powerfully ripping, all at once.|

Track by Track Review
Thundering droning ugly in the good way almost melody free instrumental with really magnetic hypnotic goings on - psi-fi pulsating dream.
Like an edgier version of "Alien Presence," this track has sirenesque guitarsscreaming, double picking meandering across the aural panorama, hypnoticthunder, and disturbing guitar abuse. When the glissando pans left toright, magic happens. many textures and tones.
Vibrato solo guitar, sparse notes, dark tones, shimmering eeriness, andspooky organ way WAY in the back. Scary and surfy.
Droning Silver Apples-like structure, didgeridoo keys, space tweakings, and
underwater nightmares. Dark, brooding, and ominous.
