LORELLE MEETS THE OBSOLETE - 'CHAMBERS'

Continuing a big week for album releases is the fresh LP ‘Chambers’ by Lorelle Meets The Obsolete (available through Sonic Cathedral UK and Captcha Records USA). The Mexican duo (Lorena Quintanilla and Alberto González) kicked off their tour last week, leaving us to lap up their third long player. It follows the singles ‘What’s Holding You?‘ and ‘Music For Dozens‘ with eight more psych wonders to discover. ‘Chambers’ was recorded with the help of Cooper Crain (from Chicago drone legends Cave) and mastered by Sonic Boom (of Spacemen 3). Surprisingly, whilst the album maintains the garage charm of its predecessors ‘On Welfare’ and ‘Corruptible Faces’, it’s less noisy overall. By degrees of course, there’s still no lack of LSD dripping guitar haze, it’s just more focused. ‘Sealed Scene’ for instance, is a colourful mix of surf rock madness mixed with LMTO’s trademark psych powers! Meanwhile ‘I Can’t Feel The Outside’ has an almost British swagger to it, with playful melodies interchanged between the husband and wife team. ‘Chambers’ sounds consistently vintage, like the beautifully sedate ‘Dead Leaves’ that could be mistaken for a 70s rocker. Lorelle Meets The Obsolete have produced a large amount of music in the past few years, I’m not sure how they manage to maintain the high quality without becoming watered down. And yet here we are again – recommended.
