Votaries: Psychometry

Votaries: Psychometry

Flannel-clad psych-gaze from Jackson Scott. Androgynous vocals, lush waves of warm, sometimes shimmering guitars, hints of melancholy. Sunbathing music. Seems easygoing and languid, but these are actually pretty concise pop songs, mostly around two or three minutes each. Songs like “Delusion” are nice trippy whirlwinds, while others like “Succumb” are closer to old Flaming Lips but more bubblegum poppy. “Your Bed Is Melting” is more nightmarish, though. “Rainbow Death Revisited” is the laser infinity jam here. I’m hearing people say this band sounds a lot like Deerhunter but I don’t listen to them so I wouldn’t know.
