Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Critically admired and fan celebrated San Francisco psychedelic power rockers ASSEMBLE HEAD IN SUNBURST SOUND delivers a one-two punch of psychedelic power choogle and lunar outpost chillout on their long awaited new album Manzanita. The most realized document of the band's shape shifting powers yet, Manzanita is a gumbo of potent California psychedelic pop rock brimming and bubbling over with feeling, fuzz, soul, sunshine melancholy, feral ferocity and hook-laden mystery. The electrically colorful quartet, whose sound was once described as ''re-envisioning Spiritualized as a jam band,'' creates what can be described as ''post psych roc'' that is at once pastoral, menacing, leaden and ethereal. Or maybe the band themselves describe it all best: ''Imagine you're alone, and [our band's] along and we're playing you a gig - our last glorious supper on this giant abandoned space freighter, just before we're ripped asunder in the gravity of giant planets. That's what we're going for.''

Review

''A fascinating blend of post-apocalyptic dread and blissed-out reverie...the root of what made California psych and post-psychedelic rock work.'' --Pitchfork

''Space-traveling fuzzbox boogie blowouts...blissed-out, sitar touched jangle...Consider your mind burst.'' --San Francisco Bay Guardian

''Assemble Head In Sunburst Sound paints a bright apocalypse'' --SF Weekly

Format: Audio CD
3rd album from San Francisco band--a mélange of psychedelic rock sounds seamlessly
integrated into varied approaches--hazy stoner prog-rock, West Coast acid sunshine, funky
backbeat soulful keyboard rock, trippy drug-guitar chant-rock, etc. The songs glide along with a
cohesive hippy-smooth 60s vibe that belies their diversity. Recalls bands like Sleepy Sun, the
Grateful Dead, Buffalo Killers, Wooden Shjips, the Strawberry Alarm Clock, Dream Syndicate.
A satisfying, head-nodding bong-smoke listen for rockers & dreamers.

Outstanding! How is it that we haven't heard this group anywhere other than on Pandora. Third song, first side, is spectacular.
