There were certain periods of peak intensity, expertly crafted by Parks and his bandmates. A long, drawn-out, abrupt pause in "Charles William" had us leaning forward, waiting for the resumption as the frontman took a slow, cavalier sip from his water bottle before launching back into the frenetic music. The intensity of his vocal delivery in "When God Comes Back" was only matched by the violence of the infectious blues riff that followed. And he and McLeod carefully built "Blood and Sand" into the dramatic final steps of a hero's journey that we, the engaged audience, had completed with them.(- Third Coast Review)
Nashville psych/stoner rock crew All Them Witches dropped by Chicago for a set last Thursday (1/14) at Lincoln Hall as part of Tomorrow Never Knows Fest that went down over the weekend. They were joined by Old Baby and Ranch Ghost. All Them Witches are still playing shows behind their 2015 album Dying Surfer Meets His Maker.
