Review : CD.

It’s easy to do some band spotting throughout the debut of the Swedish power trio Dean Allen Foyd as each track has different influences, but the cool thing is they don’t really sound like anyone exactly - so they manage to break a barrier. Certainly one of the best debuts I’ve heard. It’s not a stoner thing either, or a prog band. Just exploring a genre (sixties psych rock) they like, but I would prefer more emphasis on their jamming tendencies.

Composed entirely of guitarist/singer Francis Rencoret songs, the album evokes the heady atmosphere of the late ’60′s with druggy love utopian themes and innocent musical experimentation. Groovy psychedelic rock with blistering guitar work is mixed with contemporary pop themes given a liberal dose of backwards effects exotic percussion, flute, viola and acoustic guitar.

Folks, it doesn't get any better.
