San Francisco's Dylan Shearer has an LP out on Castle Face this week, full of breathy, pensive and slightly magical psychedelic pop packed with gently twisting melodies and wistful piano tinkling. He's joined by Oh See Petey Dammit on bass (I wonder if he's playing an actual bass or doing the pitched-down guitar thing he does with his other band) and Comet on Fire Noel von Harmonson tickling the skins, but don't expect any of the hard, crunchy psychedelia of their other bands, this one is dreamy and floaty all the way, delivered with soft, tentative restraint.   Shearer's voice is central to their sound, a shy and breathy, slightly Elliot Smith-esque baritone that sometimes breaks into a weary falsetto, a faltering multitracked spectre that lays dreamily over the softly fingerpicked guitar, tenderly brushed drums and gracefully tinkling piano. The press release gets the Soft Machine and Syd Barrett comparisons out of the way so I don't have to, but I think you get the idea. This is beautifully written, warm, comforting and likeable psychedelic pop but with a slight weary sadness to it as well. Quite lovely actually.
