On their sophomore LP, The Mystery Lights scrape at several layers of the psychedelic onion. Lead single “Someone Else is in Control” locks a heavy chuggin’ beat to some Eastern sounds, feeling like Erkin Koray gone Krautrock. There’s more than a touch of menace in the slippery slides and hounding bass riffs that lock the track into place. Naturally the accompanying clip for the track is hazy and haunted, digging up all manner of psychedelic ephemera and throwing it at the lens. The new LP lands at Wick, which, while always overshadowed by the dank grooves of Daptone, is shaping itself up into a nice enclave of garage and power pop these days.
