Something that immediately caught my eye when I happened upon this single was the fact that Sonic Boom (Peter Kember) mastered it. Sonic Boom was one third of Spacemen 3, and a couple of recent notable record credits Kember holds is being co-producer of Panda Bear’s 2011 albumÂ Tomboy and being producer of MGMT’s 2010 album Congratulations. With that said, Ttotals are a Nashville duo who perform garage-y psychedelic and blues rock. “Sometimes You Are,” the A-side to this single is the only one available for streaming at the moment and it is somewhat of a slow-burner. Heavy guitar strumming, and drum fills run rampant throughout this track making it sound like something you’d hear in a seedy bar late at night, or something that quite frankly wouldn’t be too out of place in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks series. Check out the stream of “Sometimes You Are” below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of this. Cheers!
