HIGHER STATE, THE: “Codeine” b/w “Clouds of Doubt”: 7”

Jan 27, 2023

The Ghost Riders comp on Efficient Space has been in heavy rotation at my place lately, so this Higher State single came along at just the right time. Like the haunting, melancholic, dreamy garage/folk/blues bummers on Ghost Riders, the two (well-chosen) covers here—by the legendary Buffy Sainte-Marie and the relatively unknown Faces In The Crowd—are atmospheric and searching, organic and electric. Some perfect jangle and doom for these grey sky times. –Matt Werts (Back To Beat, backtobeat.bandcamp.com)
