Sacri Monti = Digipack = (CD)
SoCal five-piece Sacri Monti traffic in liquefied kosmiche bliss. The natural word to follow that is "exclusively," but that's not quite true in this case, as it would indicate a single-mindedness that neither they nor their self-titled six-track/43-minute Tee Pee Records full-length debut actually possess, the album instead working in a natural-flowing, bright toned spectrum of guitar-driven, organ-laced classic heavy psych, six-stringers Brenden Dellar (also vocals) and Dylan Donavon, Evan Wenskay (organ, synth, Echoplex), bassist Anthony Meier (also of Radio Moscow) and drummer Thomas Dibenedetto (also of JOY) touching on progressive ideas and methods without going full-on krautrock noodle or losing their sense of groove, which remains paramount through the initial shuffle of "Staggered in Lies" and the harder-hitting swing of "Glowing Grey" in the 14-minute one-two punch that leads off. The established track record of their rhythm section should speak for itself, but it's worth pointing out that as is the case in the best of heavy psych scenarios, it's the drums and the bass anchoring the bulk of this material, the especially memorable "Slipping from the Day" seeming that much dreamier because of the solid foundation from which it spreads itself out. Dellar, Donavon and Wenskay enact an immersive swirl on "Staggered in Lies" and vibe remains prevalent throughout the cuts that follow, Sacri Monti's Sacri Monti kaleidoscoping through a wash of fuzzy distortion that seems to revel in the chaos of its own making.
