Curved Entrances – “Inscribe In Night”

Phoenix’ transcendental psych collective The Myrrors have birthed a new offshoot this year (two actually, but just gonna focus on the one for now). Guitarist Nik Rayne and drummer Grant Beyschau have drawn in The Night Collectors’ Connor Gallaher to form a trio that boasts similar vibes to their own brand of sweat lodge psychedelics. Gone is the sawed violin, though and instead the band locks into the séance slithers of deep-set drone – meditative, monolithic, and ultimately boiled into a guitar maelstrom that’s slipped out of time and into a zone beyond what they’re laying down in their flagship band. The first release as Curved Entrances offers up two side-long runs of improv insanity in extremely limited runs from Carinal Fuzz. Check the five-ton freakout “Inscribe In Night” below and snag one of the remaining LPs while you can.

RSTB Best of 2018

So, it seems that 2018 is finally coming to an end. It’s been a hell of a year by most standards, but musically its been damn entertaining. Perhaps its fair that there’s some bright spot in all the chaos. Not to diminish the chaos, but when the negativity is at an all-pervasive fever pitch, its feels good to have something to hold onto. I’ll choose to remember 2018 as a banner year for music and for the birth of my second daughter rather than the year that page refresh politics threatened to give me an ulcer any day. Below are my favorite albums of the year, taking care to highlight some that might otherwise get forgotten. They’re in (quasi) alphabetical order with no other particular weight on the list. Keep your eyes out for a few more year-end features this week before I reset for the new year. As always, thanks for sticking with RSTB for these 12-odd years or so.

The Myrrors – “El Aleph”

Arizona psych trio The Myrrors are back again this year, following on their intriguing LP, Entranced Earth from 2016 that raised their profile among psych heads everywhere. The new LP sees the band drift further from guitar psych and into dronescapes flecked with Eastern touches and their signature somber violin. The first taste from the upcoming Hasta La Victoria is a shamanistic shake through the valley of dessert psych, speaking well to their Southwest surroundings. It’s just a short wander into the scorched sun, but it feels like a ominous preview of the rest of what HLV has to offer. If you weren’t paying attention last year, then it seems Myyrors have doubled down on the urge to bend your ears to their psych prominence this year.

The Myrrors – “Entranced Earth”

The Myrrors upcoming album on Beyond Beyond Is Beyond has a couple of tracks out there now but the epic sprawl of the album’s title track is by far the most intriguing. Laden with overlapping waves of squall, a motorik chug and a haze of saxophone and flute; the track descends into the swamp of psychedelic miasma in a disorienting plunge. The song finds its groove quickly and locks in for a complete and total nod out. The band aren’t looking for a hook, far from it, the hook is that they reach further for the edges of space and stir up the dust clouds that echo the quarks in the back of your mind. But every time that pummel of drums hits the groove is grounded back to an organic rhythmic chug that keeps things from getting completely untethered.
