After some years laying low in the lineup, Farmer Dave Scher finds himself at the crest of two records of late. Already letting an EP out under his own name he follows swiftly with the new unit Farmer Dave & The Wizards of West. The first single from the album is the organ-riddled chug of “Right Vibration.” The band sees Scher reunite with The Tyde’s Ben Knight and the pair immediately sink into a lush brand of psychedelia that’s floating through the froth with a bit more rhythmic heft than their past projects, but just as much nebulous ease. Both songwriters have been known for their prowess as session players with credits on albums from Beachwood Sparks, Mystic Chords of Memory, Vetiver, Jenny Lewis, and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Bill between them, but here they both lock into the kind of dosed, yet delightful take that has been pervasive in their catalogs. The eponymous record is out January 22nd from Curation.
