OUTER MINDS "BEHIND THE MIRROR" LP
From the first note out of your speakers, this gem takes you to a different time and place entirely. Is this a lost album from 60_s psych movement? Or a reissue of a nuggets band that slipped through the cracks? The answer is none of the above, this is a current band from Chicago who have discovered how to perfectly channel their music from a different era. Every aspect of this psychedelic pop record will lure you in, from the great guitar hooks, to the creepy voodoo organs, to the male and female vocal harmonies, right on down to the fact it was recorded with a vintage tape setup brings you right back to the roots of garage psych. A bit darker then the band's debut LP on Southpaw earlier this year but just as solid.
