San Francisco’s psychedelic experimentalists Revolushn are hitting the scene with their highly anticipated second album. Further!! builds on the success of Revolushn’s acclaimed debut The Freshman, but also brings more voices and complexity to the sound.
With a range of genres inside the broader scope of psychedelic music, Revolushn impress with heavy sound and careful balance. Take, for instance, the equilibrium between electronic rhythmic melodies and a wall of guitar sound on “Dinosaurs”, or the way classic rock’n’roll blends with punk vocals on “Man Who Knew Everything”. With Aaron Connor’s production skills shining a light on their talent, this release is set to be just as successful as the band’s first.
Revolushn have spent a lot of time performing live, and you can hear it in their energy. These are tracks with the ability to knock out a room full of people. The haunted ambiance of “The River” is a striking example of a perfect live song: catchy layers play with simplicity of structure for an easy sing along and a sense of immediate likability. Slow burners like “You Will Go” may require a bit more listening, but eventually that hypnotizing cadence will sink into your bones.
If you’re looking for a trip to another world (“Dog Gets High”), intoxicating riffs (“Further!!”), or a new album the will get your blood pumping and your nostalgia bone humming, Further!! is the album for you.
