With their recent split with Naked on the Vague acting as a dip into pop's waters; Wet Hair's follow up, In Vogue Spirit is practically a jump into the pool. The band's most accessible batch of tunes to date boils with Krautrock rhythms, buzzing synths and a new focus on vocals that has previously been absent in much of the band's back catalog. It's not all motion and melody here though, the band still retains their experimental spirit, giving the record plenty of teeth to sink into any of those rising hooks. Along with contemporaries Lumerians and Moon Duo; In Vogue Spirit stands to gain a pretty solid footing in 2011's nod to the German Progressive underground. Which is a welcomed resurgence any day if you ask me. Check out the video (created by the band's Shawn Reed and Andy Roche of RSTB faves Black Vatican) for lead track "Echo Lady" below, which does a great job of conveying the band's psychedelic aesthetic through shifting shots of glare and kaleidoscopic nature walks.
