Shrouded in a cloak of mystery, freak/acid folk-rock outfit, Savaging Spires, rumored to be from England, is the stuff of unsettling late night walks home alone and a good ol’ dose of mushroom tea. Weird warbling and witching instrumentation make things all the more mysterious and inviting. The band eschews conventional song structures––if that’s not already painfully obvious––for trips such as “When The Devil Says She’s Dead”, “Apostrophe Lake” and “Cemetery Lounge”. The six-minute-plus closer, “Seconds In Motion” is a tour-de-weird that makes the case for this group being certifiably awesome. Meant to be listened to with the lights off and dark candles burning bright.
