Lantern: "Get Out of My Head"

Lantern's previous tape, Deliver Me From Nowhere, hit the psych-boogie nail squarely on the head, sounding like a good marriage of Tetuzi Akiyama and Hasil Adkins. But this time, Zachary Fairbrother has headed back towards the familiar waters of Omon Ra II with gritty guitars and amplifier scorch. The new tape, Stranger I Come. Stranger I Leave, starts out with a slow dub burner, but quickly jumps to the garage fence. Quite a few of the gems on Stranger sound like they were dug right out of The Sonics' lost songbook. The majority of the tape writhes like the first vestiges of garage punk, unleashing the kind of sonic fury that informed the snottiest of guitar tribes of the late 60's and left its mark on punks to come. --Andy French, Raven Sings The Blues
