This epic San Francisco quartet take in a vast array of retro sounds, from experimental psychedelia, Krautrock and garage to spaced out drone rock. Fronted by Erik 'Ripley' Johnson, their influences fall somewhere between the lo-fi fuzz of Suicide and Spacemen 3 battling with the Velvet Underground and the Doors. "A Psych-rock groove, a jerky Can-ish beat with organ and distorted guitar and indecipherable vocals lurking like the ghost in a machine. Rarely has trance-rock's hypnotic heart beat as persuasively." (4 stars) - The Independent
