Here’s an LP from a Texan “psych rock gang” (quoth the press release) who play a self-described “Pentecostal Desert Glam” (caps their own). In case you’re wondering, this means some kind of cross between Echo & The Bunnymen, King Dude and the Brian Jonestown Massacre fronted by what I can only describe as a slightly androgynous mix of Michael Hutchence and Glenn Danzig.

To be honest this whole glam-goth combination does tend to go over my head. Sacred Bones had a couple of decent efforts from Cult Of Youth, I suppose, and if we go way back into the past then a certain Marilyn Manson did some of his best work on glammy effort ‘Mechanical Animals’ which none of his fans liked, but it’s territory which is easier to get wrong than right and this album is patchy but not without its good moments, with the band at their best when they’re rattling off shameless classic rock-aping heroics such as the entertaining ‘Blood And Sand’.
