RIYL: Spires, Temples

Label: Greenway Records

We focus on first pressings usually at Sly, but every once in a while, there’s a second edition that looks too amazing to pass up.  Matt Stevenson, ex-front man for indie psych rockers Spires, started a new project last year and called it Jane Church, a compound of ‘British Invasion’ psych pop and the New York garage rock revival of the early aughts.  New England is a great example of this fusion, dancing between a Paisley Underground melody and mid-70s proto punk groove.  If Television and The Dukes of Stratosphear became friends and made a single, it’d sound like Jane Church.  On This Here City, Stevenson croons with stoney-eyed Lou Reed candor, but shifts gears into Brit Pop-infused higher registers as the track progresses.  Jane Church embodies the kind of schizophrenic experimentation that a lot of rock music shies from, and every track has its own identity.  Solid jams throughout.

Greenway Records sold out of their first pressing so quick, they decided to make a super rare second pressing limited to a mere 85 copies, bursting with vibrant swirling colors.  If you missed out on the first edish, you won’t be disappointed with this variant.  Grab it after the ‘buy’ link.
