JUBA - Psychedelic rock from Portugal

You may have thought given the preponderance of vocalists that JUBA would essentially be a vocal out-fit, far from it, the voices are echoed into the background giving the garage rock style psychedelia something of a mellowed feel. Tracks flow through the speakers at a veritable trot and immediately the listener is intrigued as to how the combinations will work. There is no sense of disappointment as the quartet deliver subtle moods and colours to the material that rarely runs beyond the three and a half minute mark.

JUBA have managed to distil the essence of psychotropia and dilute it with diligently produced whisps of smoke, permitting the audience to enjoy a sound that has a dreamy quality which rests the brain, whilst upping the tempo focussing the mind more on the music than an internal exploration.

Their debut LP the, ten track thirty five minute Mynah is a distinctive and enthralling body of work.
