Drifting, swirling, swooning ... this local quintet is resurrecting trippier aspects of psych-rock, a more blissful, cerebral thing than merely sounding "druggy." It's droney and a bit dark, unlike the dreamy, disorienting, psychedelia of yore. Resonant slathers of reverb, tinny clatters of cymbals and heart-thumping kicks ... warm wheezing of synths and organs and the guitars just going stratospheric ... roaring and roaming. You'll need headphones for this vinyl release (as in the big ol' '70s styled ear-envelopers) since this is music you'll wanna swim through. E.L.S.W.E.'s second album is an ambient rocker, like hearing (viewing?) some stellar explosion of cosmic dust in slow-motion.
