NEW MUSIC: The Spyrals

Spyrals, the debut self-titled full-length from San Francisco psych-rockers The Spyrals, is yet another impressive garage-y sounding record to come out of the Bay Area in the past year. Recorded at the band’s own studio on an eight-track reel to reel, the album shows two faces—one that recalls contemporaries The Fresh and Onlys or Women with a psych-pop sound, the other a heavier, droned out improvisational sound that ventures freely into the void. The nine reverb-drenched tracks offer up a mix of catchy guitar riffs and crashing percussion with a bluesy tinge added by the slide and harmonica work. Stream it below or purchase it from The Spyrals bandcamp site. You can also check out their video for album track “Trying To Please.”

Dog Gone Blog January Mix

This month’s playlist features a random selection of tunes chosen by your humble editor. Beginning with a 1960s drive-in movie intro, we travel through genres and eras, eventually winding up in an ambient sea of hypnagogic soundscapes. I hope you enjoy.
