Grass Widow’s Raven Mahon moved from California to an Australian seaside town to record this second album of psychedelic melodies with his musical cohort/new housemate, Mikey Young. Sea air and closer chemistry clearly works: Raven’s voice is deeply infectious, icy but melting, hammocked loosely between unhurried guitar licks and delightfully fuzzy synths. The detuned circling bop of ‘Tony Bandana’ glows especially strong as we bask between a sun-bleached Zombies and the spacey ease of Broadcast. A bonza listen that deserves repeat.
