Someone in the office made Phil listen to the new Causa Sui triple LP from start to finish in one sitting. "It made me feel like I was going insane," said the notorious saxophobe as he delivered it to me for review that evening. Well that sounds like a challenge if I ever heard one, so I too have committed to devouring the entire triple-headed beast in a single bite for this review.
I am currently halfway through the third LP, having put some much-needed time into alphabetising my singles during the first two, and sadly I have to say I don't really feel like I'm going insane. All is not lost, though, as I am still vibing out on these Hawkwind-meets-Motorpsycho-meets-Carlton Melton instro-jams which range from languid cosmic stoner burble to skyscraping Kyuss riffs and squealing 'Funhouse' sax. Generally the moods are uplifting and fairly chilled out.
Having reached the midway point of the final side, I think I've found the moment where Phil snapped. Penultimate track 'Santa Sangre' is a euphoric splatter of crunchy hard rock riffing and squeaky tenor sax intensity of just the kind he can't stand. For those of us who like cosmic stoner rock with lots of sax, though, this is bags of fun. I think its hazy good vibes even top their previous 'Pewt'r Sessions' high watermark. A real return to form after the slightly disappointing 'Euporie Tide'.
