Spectres¬†believe that you should make a memorable first impression. ¬†If the gloriously psychotic album art¬†doesn’t do exactly that, then dig their aural onslaught below. ¬†First single Where Flies Sleep¬†kicks the damn door off the hinges, its merciless wall of noise shrieking¬†like Godzilla giving birth to a tornado. ¬†The¬†Bristol-born 4-piece are equal parts post-punk as they are shoegaze, and their guitar layers are drenched in psychedelic¬†mushroom tea. ¬†Good luck trying to pinhole these fellas, yall. ¬†The only thing my ears know for sure is that this is one of the finest, kickassiest debuts they’ve heard in quite some time.

Sonic Cathedral, masterminds behind the insta-sellout Psych For Sore Eyes 7”, have cut 500 copies of this 10-track ferocity to translucent grey vinyl, and I don’t expect it to last too long. ¬†It’s a UK label, so prepare your wallet¬†for higher shipping costs. ¬†If you’re a fan of psych bands, though, you should be used to the extra financial wallop by now, as the¬†majority of the best labels that produce mind-melting psychedelia are UK-based. ¬†That’s the honest truth. ¬†Hey brits, whatever you’re spreading onto your biscuits in the morning…I want a taste.
