This is a frequently-fascinating little gem from the U.S. wing of the post-shoegaze / psychedelic indie rock faction. "Piled High" is a long, droning, claustrophobic buzzsaw take on dream pop that is clearly influenced by BAILTER SPACE, early VERVE and PINK FLOYD. It reminds me a lot of the "Bataille" by POEM ROCKET and "Shanesong" by COLFAX ABBEY. "Angel Warm And Cold" is a subsonic headtrip similar to The ORB's "O.O.B.E." ( which is of course an acronym for "out-of-body experience"). "Cats" is a brief, jaunty instrumental built on some sort of vinyl-scratching noise that resembles a cat screaming. (A few years ago, I heard this track on some MTV documentary or reality show or MTV News segment or something, no joke.) Fans of off-kilter indie/ noise pop bands like SWIRLIES and POLVO will want to pick this album up, and maybe fans of proggy stuff like CAN and JESSAMINE too.
