Summary

Summary

Judging from their debut album, 2014's Annabel Dream Reader, the U.K.-based act the Wytches aim for a deliberately primitive sound, with Kristian Bell's guitars floating in deep pools of fuzz and reverb while firing off blasts of feedback on a regular basis; meanwhile, Daniel Rumsey's deep, clanking bass and Gianni Honey's simple, sturdy drumming keep this music moving forward on its long march to the sea amidst their spooky drift through '60s-influenced pop and rock sounds. The results suggest a fusion of the greasy thunder of '80s garage revival bands like the Fuzztones and the spooky lyrical obsessions of vintage psychedelia (with the faintest bit of psychobilly poured in), all filtered through a potent dose of LSD. Annabel Dream Reader works well when the Wytches play this music for crazy, over the top fun on tunes like "Gravedweller" and "Wide at Midnight," and the Wytches show some genuine promise on their first full-length project. ~ Mark Deming
