Meticulously produced, Hookworms deliver instantly recognisable sonic anxiety. Fierce and energetic, dark and mysterious; Pearl Mystic is a cryptic and menacing album that frequently echoes the krautrock motorik and sonic experimentation of CAN and NEU!, combined with filthy distorted wah pedal filtered guitars somewhat reminiscent of Spacemen 3 and Loop. Despite this, Hookworms are definitely not simply record enthusiasts wearing their influences close to their sleeves, the sound is most certainly their own. Hookworms without doubt standout among the many psychedelic bands active in the UK this decade. A fantastic debut LP.
