La Hell Gang – ‘Thru Me Again’

la-hell-gang-thru-me-again-artwork

New from the Mexican Summer label, ‘Thru Me Again’, the eight track sophomore album by Chilean threesome La Hell Gang! It  takes us on a hazy, meandering trip to a psych-tinged landscape. From the muddy, swaying ‘Her Way Has Come’ to the hypnotically simple chords of ‘Sweet Dear’, La Hell Gang rely on their  full, reverb-heavy sound and bluesy psych sensibilities to hold it together.

The band know when to pile on biting layers for vintage rock blasts, and when to pull them back to a dreamy, mirage-like guitar wail that dyes Sweet Dear’s familiar tune in ‘Everywhere I Go.’ The Gang even have a “molten visual spinner” (as below) to occupy your mind while you tune out to the noisy closer ‘So High’. The album may lose focus as the band explore different sounds and indulge in 8-minute psych rock jams, but with the right mindset ‘Thru Me Again’ is a fun ride. [By Dave Lytton]

Engineers – ‘Fight Or Flight’

On August 11th UK-based genre crossers Engineers will release their fourth album, ‘Always Returning’ on the Kscope label. The album is written by multi-instrumentalist Mark Peters, who delivers his own breathy, lulling vocals for the first time, and features “the deft brush strokes of the ambient electronica producer and now fully-fledged Engineers member, Ulrich Schnauss.”

‘Flight or Fight’ is our first glimpse of the newest line up with Schnauss and drummer Matthew Linley and what a lovely impression it makes! Warm, ethereal synths swell and fall under layers of light, dreamy melodies, and delicately melancholy vocals. Schnauss‘ touch is on full display but doesn’t steal the limelight, making for a wonderful addition to Engineers wide reaching sound. [By Dave Lytton]
