As I started writing this my girlfriend Julie was fretting about her hair. Weird huh? Well this Julie's Haircut are an Italy-based cosmic psych-rock band with an interest in the metaphysical and all that sort of palaver. This, their second album blends the religious preaching of Spiritualized (they mention the lord at one point) with the drone churn of Suicide plus all sorts of jazz-flecked experimentation. A record for altered states and higher consciousness. Long may they drone on.

In The Silence Electric by Julie's Haircut

I could have thought of a killer opening line to this article, especially considering the name of this band - Julie's Haircut - but I haven't really got time, but please look out for the references to hairdressing throughout! 'In The Silence Electric' is the debut album from psych-poppers Julie's Haircut. It's a heady blast of neo-psychedelia with nods to bands like Spiritualized and even the Velvet Underground with heaps and heaps of drones and vocals that sound a little bit like Swans. 

This album is shaved (zing) by the boundless energy of the songs. Some pretty standard psych fare is made a little more dangerous by some vigorous and well thought-out arrangements. Even a slower song such as 'Lord Help Me Find The Way' has a certain menace in its bleakness. I love how, on 'Until The Lights Go Out', the beat just chugs away while feedbacky guitars whirl around it. Weird textures fade (zing) in and out like birds round a chip.

The stand-out song is 'Sorcerer'. It's got a tidy lange gerade beat, murmured vocals, droney organ, what's not to love?! I mean, aside from the slightly egregious guitar solo which needs to shaved off (...zing...). The dub and jazz elements of 'Darlings Of the Sun' meanwhile were surprising but welcome. 

This is a fun, mean, moody, murky record that bankrupted me, hair puns wise, but was enjoyable nonetheless.
