Geezer | Groovy

(Heavy Psych Sounds Records)
Heavypsychsounds.com

While the very cool, blacklight-ready, '70s-esque, lysergic album art from Ryan Williams might imply Scooby Doo territory, the latest full length from Kingston's acclaimed stoner rock torch bearers Geezer is very multilayered. The songs breathe a lot more, the band sounds more at ease than ever, and the synergy between the trio, engineer Matthew Cullen, and the studio comes across in every track. "Atlas Electra" is one of the brightest constellations in the Geezer pantheon of godly tunes yet, a laid-back, melodic slow burn that eases over you like a billowing cloud. "Slide Mountain" is a near-perfect, jammed-out mostly instrumental meditation that somehow evokes a weird, multidimensional handshake between Clutch and Explosions in the Sky. "Dead Soul Scroll" hypnotizes whales with far out, spacious sounds while the band achieves near-ZZ Top levels of boogie glory and future nostalgia on the commanding title track.
