Oh FFS, this talented bunch know how to punch all my buttons without even trying. Recalling early Russian Circles / Secret Machines / Mugstar (no bad thing to this punter) with relentless motorik drumming, interstellar acid-guitar soloing, occasional buried vocals and a Kosmische Musik sensibility, this five-track release (soon available on purple and black spatter vinyl) is a positive delight.
With titles like “Hey Droog”, “Interstellar Fuzz Star” and “Exit to The Death Lane” it’s easy to see where Psychic Lemon have picked up their influences from. It’s no bad thing. Give me musicians who want to go somewhere out-there whilst ticking off all the boxes that make the title of this little treasure any day.
Brevity is the soul of wit. It’s bloody great. Buy it. Play loud!
