Album Review

Bookstaber, Rafi – “Late Summer” – [Woodsist]

Thurston Hunger   12/30/2016   12-inch, A Library

Seasonal sounds that I slept on, sorry. One or two
chord mantras, with some psych guitar noodling,
but drenched in belt-gaze (shoe-gaze cranked up to
your waist) production. Songs are like jammy
pajamas for the nudist colony at the beach. Loose
fitting. The lyrics slip away into the shimmery
mix, but printed out so you can at least read
the third generation hippy strain if you don’t
actually feel it, man. A mellow that can only
be harshed by some severe mixology? We don’t
have any of Rafi’s other stabs at sound, but
from what I’ve checked out, fans of this could
take an easy chance with Death Chants. And hard to
resist the Woodsist gist.
