Album Review

Slift – “Ummon” – [Vicious Circle]

karma   8/14/2022   A Library, CD

Slift is a three-person psych/stoner rock band out of Toulouse, France. The sound can be described as a mix of early Green Day, Moon Duo, Somali Yacht Club, and Jimi Hendrix. Most tracks feature short lyrical sections and long, repeating, Krautlike instrumentals. The tracks are brimming with energy and fresh takes on psychedelia. This album is arguably a concept album – Slift says the story is about the Titans’ exile and Hyperion’s triumphant yet arduous return to Earth. A very prescient story. In February 2020, when the album was released, few could see that we all would be isolated and face an arduous return to whatever normal life is.

Slift, such an amazing band. I?ve been listening to them since Ummon FIRST came out. They?re on their first North American tour, including Mexico City (and only Mexico City). I can?t wait to see them on October 25, 2022, in Mexico City. I live in Mexico, so that makes it easy for me.
Once again, thank you Dangerous Dan for playing Citadel On A Satellite this morning, it put a big smile on my face, no only that, but it adds to the anticipation of seeing them in MX City, my first time in MX City, and first concert in MX City.
Good job Dangerous Dan, and thank you *KFJC*.
Stephen Huerta, Nayarit, Mexico
