Album Review

Major Stars – “Synoptikon” – [Twisted Village] – (33pm)

Numa   5/11/2006   12-inch, A Library

Psychedelic Riff Rock This is the 6th release from Massachusetts-based rockers Major Stars on the Twisted Village Label (They also have a record store that is well worth the visit if you find yourself in Cambridge). Expanding to include 3 guitars and a dedicated vocalist now evens the number of members out to 6. Their sound has become more dense and riff-filled as ever. This 12″ is filled with solid psych-grooves and doesn’t disappoint in that arena. In a landscape that is filled with psych-this and psych-that, Major Stars stands out with their unflinching style. Two of the six tracks are think instrumentals in which the guitars weave the overdriven fuzz to the point of breaking. The other four tracks on the album feature the vocals of Sandra Barrett formerly of LA Drugs. — Numa
