Album Review :: L.A. Witch - L.A. Witch
September 8 2017 (Suicide Squeeze Records)
Words: Alison Mack
The Californian trio pack up their reverb and garage-psych and pile it all into this debut album that drips with reverbed guitars and sultry vocals of Sade Sanchez.
Opener 'Kill My Baby Tonight' is the perfect introduction to the band’s 60s girls-in-the-garage style and David Lynch’s surreal exposés of Southern California’s underbelly. 'Brian' reveals similar slow-mo psych leanings, while the motorik beat and fuzzed-out licks of 'Drive Your Car' and step-on-the-gas speed of 'Feel Alright' sit equally well with the dreamier delight of the langorous 'Baby In Blue Jeans' providing a seductive, haunting, and engaging sound that encompasses garage rock, dreampop, psych, and beyond.
