Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound – When Sweet Sleep Returned (2009)(320 kb/s)

It’s become somewhat apparent that since Comets on Fire have gone on a sort of hiatus, the world has been lacking really good, fuzzed out psych rock from California. Thankfully, Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound have stepped up to the plate with the release of their third LP, and possibly lifted the crown off the sleeping giant’s head.

What really sets these guys apart, and is noted in the opener ‘Two Stage Rocket’, is their ability to restrain themselves from going to places they cant find their way back from. Instead of long, watered-down ‘freak-outs’, Assemble Head seems more interested in sounding something like a 70’s Italian horror film with vocal harmonies by the Byrds circa Sweetheart of the Rodeo than some bastard child of the first Stooges record. –full review at… impose magazine.
