In A Nutshell Review: All Them Witches – Dying Surfer Meets His Maker

3.5 OUT OF 5 NUTS!

dyingsurferThere have been a lot of psych bands putting albums out this year: Rose Windows, The Myrrors, Moon Duo, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Wand, and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, to name a few. The interesting thing about Nashville foursome All Them Witches’ album, Dying Surfer Meets His Maker, is that it’s one of the more interesting “psychedelic” experiences I’ve heard all year.

Dying Surfer Meets His Maker takes many forms. “Dirt Preachers” revs it engines with a fuzzy force that makes it one of the album’s most captivating. Songs like “El Centro” rumble with a monolithic vibe that could set itself in either the Tool or Sleep category. Then with its longer numbers such as “Instrumental 2 (Welcome To The Caveman Future),” “Talisman,” and “Blood and Sand – Milk And Endless Waters,” the album can take on a beautifully heavy desert like spirituality.
