By most bands’ fifth LP, the sound is pretty set. Parameters established. Refinement dissipated in favor of formulaic execution of what’s worked in the past and with the new single from the Nashville psych-rock experimentalists, ALL THEM WITCHES is sounding really promising.
In 2017, the Nashville four-piece offered what might’ve otherwise become their own template in their fourth album, "Sleeping Through The War". Their second for New West Records following 2015’s mellow-vibing "Dying Surfer Meets His Maker", Sleeping brought larger production value to dug-in heavy psych blues jamming with oversight from producer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson). Good or bad, well I have learned to like it true time, even if the older one is more playable for my ears.
The new album is mixed by Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith, Kurt Vile) and introducing keyboardist/percussionist Jonathan Draper to the fold with McLeod, bassist/vocalist Charles Michael Parks, Jr., and drummer/graphic artist Robby Staebler, the new eponymous record isn’t self-titled by mistake.
Today's tune "Diamond" is taken from the upcoming album "ATW", set to be released September 28. The Video is directed by Robby Staebler.
Additionally, the band has announced a US headlining tour, kicking off at the Desert Daze Music Festival in Perris, CA on October 12-14 where they will play alongside the likes of MY BLOODY VALENTINE, TAME IMPALA, KING GIZZARD AND THE LIZARD WIZARD.
