7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 6th November 2014

Due to artists such as Devendra Banhart and Vetiver there was a resurgence in psych-folk in the early-mid 00s which saw the likes of Vashti Bunyan and Linda Perhacs releasing new albums and having old an classic re-released respectively, and the release of Andy Votel’s superb “Folk Is Not A Four Letter Word” compilation. Riding that wave, Gary Higgins was rediscovered after a campaign to find him was raised by Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance, “Red Hash”, originally from 1973, was subsequently re-released by Drag City in 2005.

“Thicker than a Smokey” opens the album and is the most memorable of all the cuts. It has a peaceful melodic quality before the bluesier “It Didn’t Take Too Long” comes in. This reminds me a little of the quieter numbers by Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac. “Windy Child” ramps up the psych-folk with flutes and layers of ethereal harmony vocals. More ethereal folky-ness comes in the form of “I Pick Notes from the Sky”. I think that fans of Vetiver would definitely find something to like here, or anyone who fancies a gentle listen on Sunday afternoon. It’s quite pleasant.
