IN THE RED


Format: MLP
Cata No: ITR345
Barcode: 759718534511
(***LAST MINUTE DROP!! INSTOCK NOW!!!)“Massive slab of debut vinyl by a Brooklyn New York trio
whose guitarist, Jason Victor, knows more than a little about
the potential of psych-gush overload. In his position as the
current guitarist of the Dream Syndicate, one might suppose
that, by stepping into shoes formerly occupied by Karl Precoda,
Mr. Victor was granted some sort of special legacy connection
to the ur-root of string-excess in the post-punk era. But Jason
seems to have been blowing the tops of people’s heads off with
pure raunch vomona since before he ever met Steve Wynn.
“The Skull Practitioners have been active since 2013,
garnering a reputation for bodacious live skronk, although
the only graspable evidence of their existence has been a 2014
cassette, which was not widely distributed. Now, with the mighty
In The Red empire behind them, only a sucker would think they
won’t go far.
“Victor’s explosive guitar shards are the most obvious
element of the trio’s sound, but bassist Ken Kenneth Levine can
conjure up a throb as thick as Al Feedtime’s, and Alex Baker’s
drumming mixes propulsion and motorik circularity with
reckless grace. There are only vocals on half the tracks here—
Gun Club-seasoned blow-outs called “The Beacon” and “Grey
No More”—but I didn’t miss them on their other two tunes.
The richness of the band’s psychedelic inventions obviates the
need for overt human lingo. The music here communicates on a
molecular level.
“Remember when Tim Leary said Peter Walker was ‘playing
celestial strings on the DNA of musical being’? It’s the same
here. I’ve never heard much of Jason’s studio work (often with
pop engines like the Silos or Matthew Sweet), but if he plays this
great, I might have to check them out. In the meantime, these
four songs will be enough. For me. For you. Even for the late
Tim ‘Fuckin’ Leary. C’est la.”
