BLACK VALLEY MOON: Spectral Melodies Vol 1: 7”

This band keeps churning out quality releases like nobody’s business. Here are four more songs of moody, mysterious instrumentals that would make Dick Dale smile. Yes, the surf element is there but so is the spaghetti western vibe, which is awesome. All the songs are cool, and the insert has pictorial representations for each one. Play this at your next beach party and pass the wine coolers. –Sean Koepenick (Otitis Media, otitismediarecords.bandcamp.com)
