Las Kellies – “Summer Breeze”

Las Kellies have been working at their take on garage meets dub for over a decade, but they’re finally finding that sweet spot on their newest, Friends & Lovers, for Fire Records. They’ve chipped back the dub cave dramatics somewhat, but there remains a decent dublate’s worth of echo flitting around most of the album’s vocals. On “Summer Breeze,” they channel the “Wild In The Country” tom tom chug from classic Bow Wow Wow and drape the garage glimmer swimming above that beat in a glint of seaside ease and plenty of hazy dream pop inflections. As such, they seem to find that Bermuda Triangle of garage-psych coolness that they’ve long been searching for. The video’s a simple treatment, but one that fits the song soundly. Its all washed out shots of the band playing in the aforementioned “Summer Sun,” rocking in and out of focus like a sunburned delirium dream. For a taste of sweat soaked psych, there’s few others that are hitting these notes this year.
