The US alt-rock quartet Chill Russell released the EP …And Yet We’re Captivated on the 12th.
The approximately twenty two minutes five track EP (available on bandcamp) leaves a faint whiff of cannabis resin floating in the air in a sound wrapped in ’60s retro-rock with a delivery that resonates of the warmth of analogue recording.
Chill Russell don’t aim to take the listener on a psychotropic trip rather a relaxing ride and the dexterous infusion of synths gives the compositions a sense of flotation inviting the audience to don tie-dyed tops in which to kick up their heels.
My pick of the release is the third – Low with its almost five minutes of becalming washes of sounds.
