Portand’s Wooden Indian Burial Ground unleash a sophomore album via the Belgian label Exag and it makes good on a lot of promises that their 2012 LP spit forth. The new platter pushes bounds of psychedelic excess coming in at fourteen tracks of froth, spit and burnout fizz. The standout here is “Sad Mutations” a track that’s burning on the same psychotic jet fuel that Thee Oh Sees and King Gizzard have gotten into at their most frantic. The song’s full of high powered fuzz, dizzy organ and those yelps that that crack the sky and make you remember just why garage psych has the power it does. As much fun as the rest of the LP is, it would be great if it could all live up to the tease that this track lays down. The breathless beating of “Sad Mutations” is more than enough though to put them in good graces for years to come. Word is there’s a US pressing of the album in the works too. So that keeps more change in your pocket.
