- Nearest Suns by Brad Laner
Review corner is quickly becoming trippy psychpop corner today as my mind has been pleasantly melted first by the new Connan Mockasin and now by the third solo effort from Brad Laner, fresh from a Medicine reunion and the systematic reissue of everything he’s ever done since age 12.
I’m happy to report that Laner is in restlessly creative form here, with a schizophrenic sunshine pop drift which takes elements of Tame Impala and the Beach Boys and swirls them into a bright smudge of colour with a wispy lightness which brings to mind the likes of Connan Mockasin or Candy Claws. It’s very much a studio effort, with all manner of trickery adding to the detached but warm psychedelia, instruments drift in and out of the mix, vocals sometimes cut in and out, it gives the whole thing a flowing, dreamlike feel. It’s a playful and thoughtful collection of solo psych-pop which is deliciously warm but also frequently disorientating. Fans of the aforementioned Impala and Mockasin would be well advised to give this one a go. Thumbs up.
