1. Product Details

Massive slab of debut vinyl by a Brooklyn New York trio whose guitarist Jason Victor knows more than a little about the potential of psych-gush overload. In his position as the current guitarist of the Dream Syndicate one might suppose that by stepping into shoes formerly occupied by Karl Precoda Mr. Victor was granted some sort of special legacy connection to the ur-root of string-excess in the post-punk era. But Jason seems to have been blowing the tops of peoples heads off with pure raunch vomona since before he ever met Steve Wynn.The Skull Practitioners have been active since 2013 garnering a reputation for bodacious live skronk although the only graspable evidence of their existence has been a 2014 cassette which was not widely distributed. Now with the mighty In The Red empire behind them only a sucker would think they wont go far. Victors explosive guitar shards are the most obvious element of the trios sound but bassist Ken Kenneth Levine can conjure up a throb as thick as Al Feedtimes and Alex Bakers drumming mixes propulsion and motorik circularity with reckless grace. There are only vocals on half the tracks here-Gun Club-seasoned blow-outs called The Beacon and Grey No More-but I didnt miss them on their other two tunes. The richness of the bands psychedelic inventions obviates the need for overt human lingo. The music here communicates on a molecular level. Remember when Tim Leary said Peter Walker was playing celestial strings on the DNA of musical being Its the same here. Ive never heard much of Jasons studio work often with pop engines like the Silos or Matthew Sweet but if he plays this great I might have to check them out. In the meantime these four songs will be enough. For me. For you. Even for the late Tim Fuckin Leary. Cest la. -Byron Coley
