Peanut Butter Lovesicle: Heavy Daze Wildcat Craze (ep)

~ Thursday, 6 October 2011
Is it just me are are we having a bit of a Psych revival. Peanut Butter Lovesicle have went for a 'live' sound with this 5 track ep where they stray into Dinosaur Jnr territory rather than the 60's and 70's psych sound of bands like Moby Grape or 10 Years After.

As hard as PBL try they fail miserable to capture any of the spirit of bands they aspire to be. At times the vocals are deeply unpleasant while the guitar sounds like an out of tune chainsaw. The only track that offers some hope is the Black Sabbathesque Sicamore Trees which appears to have lifted huge chunks from Sabbath's Iron Man.

There are so many bands doing this so much better that it is hard to find anything positive to say about this pretentious pile of shi*e. Save your money and your ears folks and go buy some Zappa, Moby Grape, Grateful Dead, ZZ Top or Hendrix instead.
