Masaki Batoh’s Silence has released three albums since their formation in 2014 and each one has proven a trove of psych that traverses expectations by embracing some more traditional rock forms alongside the creeping, ominous vibes that Ghost served up. The latest shows no signs of dialing in their eclecticism, but when the band’s on, they’re on and “Ritual of the Sun (Worm Hole to the Universe)” is the band at their psychedelic breakdown, jazz skronk-laden, full-on Joshua Light Show best. The video captures the band live in their element but to be honest, that’s pretty much all you need to convince that The Silence is worth the time. The track is from the just released Nine Suns, One Morning on their home at Drag City.
