Psychedelic Rock - Matt Piucci - Hellenes (2000 Inbetweens Records) Flac & mp3
"Spectacular Dive" has eerie, ghostly vocals, and a melody that recalls the more tuneful parts of Pink Floyd's WISH YOU WERE HERE crossed with some of Neil Young's smoldering, spacey guitar jams, but Piucci brings a lean sense of dynamics that give his songs punch and real staying power. There's a healthy variety of mood here, with unexpected wry humor. The acoustically-driven, haunting, forlorn "I Didn't Mean to Make You Cry" recalls Syd Barrett's solo ballads, while "Love is Mine" is a thundering Byrds/Tom Petty-style rocker, and the chugging, humorous "T. Rex" is a surreal yet affectionate tribute to both band and dinosaur. The guitars shimmer, jangle and smolder intensely throughout--Piucci plays with tense, steely purpose--and the production is lush and layered.
What can i say? Great album! Great musician! Enjoy it!
