Album Review

Photon Band – “Pure Photonic Matter Volume 1” – [MVDaudio]

selector   4/16/2014   12-inch, A Library

Psychedelic rock, with lots of cool fuzzy chords and spacey stuff mixed in, albeit with the lyrics being a bit poppy. This record released in 2013, but Photon Band has been around since 94, with long absences. Fronted by Art DiFuria. Many of the tracks have sections of quiet melody and mellow vocals, sandwiched between heavier guitar-laden psychedelia. Track 6, the instrumental Found in Space, leans into hippyland with analog electronics. My favorite: Track 12, Thought Crimes (Part 2), with lots of guitar wrangling, stands apart from the slightly poppy feeling of the rest of the tracks. Instrumentals: Went to the Space Bar, Found In Space, Soundings In Fathmos, But I Wanna Know, Thought Crimes Pt 2, Repose.
