Psychedelic Horseshit: "French Countryside"

Matt Whitehurst has a history of verbally battling his contemporaries in the press (Wavves, No Age), and a knack for agitation; but the man's always said that if he could just get into a studio, and get some fidelity behind him, he'd have a hell of a record in him. Thus, the first rule of his new Laced LP on FatCat is "forget everything you think you know about Psychedelic Horseshit." The record threads noise through melody so tightly that it's hard to tell where one begins and the other ends. Whitehurst has amped up his sonic palette and made a record that slaloms through pop chunks, extended psychedelic jams that befit the band's namesake, and electronic collages that far exceed the limitations of any of their previous releases. "French Countryside" is just the first taste of this fractured behemoth. --Andy French, Raven Sings the Blues
