Its a great day when Major Stars are back in action. The veteran psych band has been pushing their volume dipped heavy psych for nine albums now and the first taste of their latest for Drag City is a reminder that while there are plenty of new band’s crawling for the mantle, some lone warriors earned it long ago and might be hard to topple. The band has cycled through a few vocalist in the past few years but newcomer Hayley Thompson-King seems fit for the fury that the axis of Wayne Rogers and Kate Biggar are pushing behind her. The track is as heavy as anything The Dead Weather have been kicking out these past few years, but without the truly glossy topcoat. Major Stars have always known how to get a bit gritty and dirty, without ever losing volume and impact. This is a good omen of things to come on Motion Set.
