The Tasmanian trippy-rock outfit The Silverbeets release the LP Stay Tuned on the 11th of June.
An eleven chapter album (available on bandcamp) which plays akin to an anthology of short stories in its approaching one hours run-time. Though each song can be heard in isolation, Stay Tuned is best heard in one sitting to fully enjoy, thereby allowing the compositions to lace one in to the other, resulting in the mind meandering to explore its own outer-reaches whilst immersed in the multi-textured weave that resonates of the summer of love.
The further the album progresses, the deeper the listener becomes entranced by psychedelic wash of the softly flowing LP with the pulses of the brain slowing to an almost imperceptible flicker from which there is no desire to restart the clock on its conclusion.
It has been a couple of years since the The Silverbeets last featured and although I was made aware of a release in the offing, some little while ago, I was becoming less convinced the delay would be warranted – now having had the opportunity to listen to everything I fully understand why their own perception of time expanded. If it is another couple of years before the next reveal I will fully understand the rationale.
There is no typical song on Stay Tuned, though The Silverbeets will be releasing the second track And I/You Thought on the 1st of June in advance of the full release.
