The Warlocks

After an uneventful foray into (semi)major label territory and the hardly mentionable album, Surgery that was the result, it seems that The Warlocks are heading back towards their former promise. Hooking up with fuzzed psyche homestead Tee Pee Records, the band have taken their usual bite out of the MBV/ Jesus and Mary Chain catalogues and kept their overt pop tendencies under check. Heavy Deavy Skull Lover rides an opiate cloud of haze over a pretty steady stream of shoegaze melodies and washed out blues. A nice addition of atmospherics as they flesh out the band to a well rounded 7 members. I'd always been a fan of the band's Phoenix album and it's nice to see them wander back to that era's territory.

Yes, Heavy Deavy Skull Lover rules but I don't agree with all this new "Surgery" bashing...That record was actually pretty damn good!
