Quilt

(Mexican Summer; US: 8 Nov 2011; UK: 8 Nov 2011)

Boston-based Quilt unleashes ten tracks of memorable psychedelic-driven pop that will no doubt garner comparisons to some late ‘60s cult band or another, maybe even the finer moments of Jefferson Airplane. Two-and-three part male/female harmonies fuel numbers such as “Cowboys In The Void”, “Children Of Light”, and the six-minute jam “Rabid Love”. Some of the better, more interesting pieces appear late in the game, like “Utopian Canyon”, with its Byrds-ian guitar lines and jingle-jangle vibe, and the closing track “Gome Home”. Doubtless a stunning live act.
