ZOLTARS, THE: Walking through the Dark: LP

Slower, introspective garage rock. Dream-like fuzz jams that lull you into a secure warmth and drag you into a happy place. Normally I’d use the phrase, “makes you fall asleep” as a negative statement, but this is a pleasant listen with great songwriting. The trancelike state that the music creates is a wonderful, natural high. Grade: B+
