EMPTY PALACES: Secret Names: CS

Psychedelic rock with garage rock production and desert rock vibes. My most charitable read is that it sounds like The Treasure Fleet, which I guess means it sounds like Syd Barret-Pink Floyd. It’s too sedate for me. Not enough “21st Century Schizoid Man” shredding for me to pay continuous attention. The moments where the guitar kicks in are good, no doubt. Just not enough of them for me. It’s meditative, cyclical. Something like King Gizzard but more low key. –Gwen Static (Snappy Little Numbers, snappylittlenumbers.com)
