Review - "Interference" by Candi and The Strangers (out February 5th, 2013)

Review - "Interference" by Candi and The Strangers (out February 5th, 2013)

Sure, Richard Garriott got to ride a rocket into outer space. And meanwhile, Candi and The Strangers were left the task of generating music appropriate for such a feat. And boy did they.

Psych-flavored, ethereal shoegaze pop; kissed lightly with the flavor of dusty forsaken towns; these numbers come close to fulfilling the promise of the highly-respected brain-trust that is Candi and The Strangers. With ties to local favorites The Black Angels, Voxtrot, and The Octopus Project; the Constants + the Roses + Erik Wofford have generated this entity's third release with machinistic precision; successfully nailing the "Spaghetti Western Space Dream" they aimed for; and using some rather esoteric instrumentation (theremin, vibraphone, omnichord) and talent (the Tosca String Quartet) in the dealio.  

Though this one started off as a score (for the word-ily titled "Man On A Mission: Richard Garriott's Road to the Stars"), it deserves it's own screen. And headline.

It'll land here in it's entirety 2/5/13.  Make plans to go snatch it up.
