With scene stalwarts Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr lining up in fervent support, ‘Yankee Reality’ is Hush Arbors second Ecstatic Piece album after last year’s revelatory eponymous release.
Wood has taken his ghostly acid-fried folk-rock and bolted both feral garage and a carnal jangle to this Exocet of ideas.
Maybe the term "Lo-fi orchestration" is a little too contradictory, but we feel that Hush Arbors pulls it off. Hush Arbors produce sombre tunes that harken back to backwoods Americana. While Woods stirring vocals wind around eggshell guitar chords, frayed ends of jittery electronics and garage bombast are added to the mix.
Drenched in hazy rich harmonies, ringing guitars, and horns, the mysterious El Goodo are a psychedelic group from the village of Resolven in South Wales, U.K. Friends Super Furry Animals have brought El Goodo along on tour as well as released their self-titled debut on their own label, Placid Casual.
THE SEE SEE
"Psych-country pop that mixes West Coast '60s America, junked-out '70s and the best of '90s northern England" -NME
"The See See are a revelation, demonstrating you can still rock the jingle jangle guitars and tight Beach Boys harmonies and remain fresh." Alan McGee, This Is Jack Magazine
