This is the second release from Montreal’s Rishi Dhir and has band of psych rockin’ pals. Rishi has been making a name for himself thanks to his talent on the sitar, touring with some pretty sick bands like Brian Jonestown Massacre. I’ll admit it, I’m a little surprised by the amount of hype surrounding this album. It’s got some solid jams and pretty impressive musicianship, specifically by Rishi himself, but it’s not astounding. I like my psych rock with a side of reverb and an extra helping of fuzz, and there could have been more of both for the majority of the record. The vocals are clear and poppy. The instrumentation is deliberate and precise. It feels clean. I don’t like clean.
