Sensations, bro' ! Sweet Sensations !
How is the sound ?
Greece. Again. After 1000mods, Naxatras, among many others, Athens delivers another psychedelic gem, Yearling, from Whereswilder :
Here we go, with the trendy but somehow awesome “Modern Antique” thing, “an engaging modern take on a charming vintage feel and sound“, as they say. I felt The Beatles and Syd Barrett all through Yearling, and it was good. No vulgarity, no sense of kitsch in the melodies and lyrics but an all natural sense of groove, soft and shallow compositions, for the most part but no annoyance throughout the whole album.
That said, this vintage tone is mixed with Stoner fuzzyness, energy and aesthetic. What is brought out of it is a psychedelia I felt before, a bit like Colour Haze or Sungrazer, but with a punch that’s more vintage and pop, somehow, coming closer to Tame Impala.
Why is this album worth listening ?
- Mr Lennon ? Is that you ?
- You can actually bring your parents to like this. (tested & approved)
- Music that’ll please to the ears of the non-stonerhead. To bring new people in the fuzzway…
In what situation you should listen to this album ?
From morning to midnight, from Iceland to Nile, this piece of music would always make you smile.
Something particular to note ?
We’d better follow Six Dogs Records, and see what other interesting sounds they will have for us in the future.
