ZOLTARS: Self-titled: LP

Jul 21, 2015

The Zoltars doesn’t have any urgency. It’s music for hot Texas summer evenings as the sun sets and the refraction of the heat moves the air about like waves in the ocean. There’s a slow, sedated quality that would make or break this music for whomever attempts to enjoy it. Sonically, think early 1960s garage rock and early psych with pop melodies. The record almost sounds like a Nuggets disc with the diversity of song flows. It’s a good record, not quite my speed, but a good record nonetheless. The Zoltars knows very clearly who it’s trying to be and it shows. Grade: B.
