Hm, not too sure how I feel about 'psych-infused country-rock', doesn't seem right to me. But, if psych-infused country-rock is your thing, then Unto The Earth by Last of the Easy Riders may be the perfect thing for your ears. Available on vinyl LP and CD, and released on Agitated. It's worth noting that the LP, is red, limited to 500 copies and includes a poster.

7/10 Robin Staff review, 07 February 2018

Trust me: this is a scam. Last of the Easy Riders sound chill, I know -- there’s Grateful Dead in the lilt of their vocals and Allman Bros’ in the twang of their geetars -- but they think you’re philistines. I opened up my jewel case of ‘Unto the Earth’, popped out the CD and copped a message printed beneath: ‘VISIT YOUR NATIONAL PARKS’. Like a boy being mocked by his high-school deputy headmaster, I’m off for a shame-ridden holiday in the Lake District.

Ahem. On the newest Easy Riders record, the psychedelics are light and loving, with lovely melodies and jointly-cooed harmonies making a standing order. The guitars are as lovely as can be -- they might sound old-school as Eagles, but they could attract a good few fans of Martin Courtney or Surface to Air Missive. The keyboards, well, ditto -- between Supertramp and War on Drugs, pick your passion. Far from the wall-to-wall tripping of their debut, this record sits close to familiar melodies and kindly pastiches. Even at their more spooky, as on the record’s title track, they sound like someone who’s done it before, like a knowing tour guide to the Jefferson Airplane museum of light freakery.

I prefer it in country mode, but sometimes that matches up best with a bit of weird: the bold and valleyed riffs of “High and Lonesome” meet with plucked banjos and sun-in-your-eyes synth for a song that somehow, from within the depths of nonsense, comes together. It's safe to say they know what they doing, even when they don't.
