I usually refuse to listen to music without lyrics made after 1976, but producer Randall Dunn (who’s worked with Sun City Girls, Sunn O))), Earth, etc.) made this album sound like it was recorded in a time vacuum. It falls under some tangential, unclassifiable genre that combines surf rock, space psych, weird Egyptian modal shit, and music that ghosts like. The only bad part is that they only made 500 vinyl copies, so you better figure out how to get it quickly or you won’t be able to show your limp-wristed post-rock buds why Mogwai is for toddlers.
