Wow, some weeks the calibre of stuff we get in is amazing. Here's the new album from Edibles. They're from Portland and the press release describes them as 'trance boogie', which on one hand is pretty accurate, but also kind of makes it sound like they won't be as good as they actually are. The cover's this awesome collage with a proper 80s-looking dude in a cowboy hat and shades and short shorts with a ghetto blaster hanging out on a tatty sofa in front of what I can only assume is the Temples of the Moon from the fact that the picture is called 'Kickin' it at the Temples of the Moon'. As far as I gather, it's the brainchild of Dewey Mahood, who does darker and more psychedelic things in other bands, so I guess maybe this is his way of unwinding. A lot of it's really stripped back and minimal mellow dub. Basically it's tailor-made for blazing up on a summer evening. It's pretty minimal and soundtracky in places, although it gets pretty psychedelic sometimes too. I think if it was a film soundtrack it'd be a pretty cool film about a guy who goes around being really cool and doing some really cool things, dead casual like he doesn't give a shit, and then goes home and smokes loads of chong. But enough about me...it's good to hear music like this that's not entirely focused on electronic instrumentation. There's a song on the second side, 'Dune Buggy', that sounds kind of like a totally loved-up Raccoo-oo-oon. It's hard to pin this album down but the grooves and melodies keep coming and it never stops sounding like the background music to a good time. Tasty stuff, just in time for summer and all.
