REVIEW: Carinae - Carinae vinyl/cassette/cd (1388303 Records DK2)

In the, hmm...let's call it, post-Tame Impala world there's no shortage of bands exploring the textural and sonic boundaries of pop music and redefining what it means to be a "psych band".  By-in-large I'm here for it, but sometimes the simple art of writing a good song can get lost in a sea of lush, drippy, mind-melting production.  Enter Carinae.  Hailing from Hadley, Massachusetts these psychedelic sonic warriors deliver all the stratospheric exploration you need to get your next acid trip where it needs to be, but offer up some really great song craft while they're at it.  Think Dugen if they veered a little closer to 'A Wizard, A True Star'.  For my money one of the better purveyors of the new psych.  Get it here.
