REVIEW: Mr. Elevator & The Brain Hotel - Nico & Her Psychedelic Subconscious (Burger)

If you think you can win this guy over with a Nico reference in the title of your record you are...completely right, my freaky friend.  Well it takes a little more than that to impress me, but these guys back up their album title's mind-altering claims with the fucking goods.  They take their keyboard-driven, hard-psych-freakbeat sounds (the organ has a frickin' wah pedal on the opening track, for christ's sake!) very seriously and they sound good doing it.  The record is expertly arranged, recorded and executed.  Mr. Elevator & The Brain Hotel combine an undeniably vintage tone with a more hi-fi approach to the overall production.  The results are far-out, man.  Just roll a fatty, sit back in your favorite chair, spark that bitch up and melt into recesses of your consciousness.  Get it here.
