A plaintive solo synth opens this album before lunging into some mid pace psych-rock with a vocal put through one of those 70’s whirly machines that I can never remember the name. Space-y psychedelic rock is definitely a musical theme at the moment, and Naam’s brand is pretty good. More rock than space, I would say but pleasingly frazzled at the edges and with some interesting nods towards 80’s indie and prog rock. The highlight of the album for me is the keyboard playing which elevates the fairly average rock songs to a higher plateau and gives it the retro edge. A Farfisa organ here and a Rhodes there provide the perfect decoration for their sound. There are other aspects of the album which indicate a solid identity, such as “Pardoned Pleasure” with its slinky slide guitar work or the Black Sabbath meets the Doors stomp of “Midnight Glow”, but for me this album would be half of what it’s worth without the dynamic keyboard player. Find yourself a plaid shirt, a beard and a bong and rock out dude.
