2015 release from this great, ever-changing psych/indie band. This record is a little less poppy and more stoned out than their previous efforts. I support this change. Goddamn this is some good stuff. Please buy it next week.
The Helio Sequence - The Helio Sequence  [Album]
Sub Pop / SP1133 / CD
MP3 / V0 (VBR)
The self-titled sixth album by The Helio Sequence began with a friendly competition. Several of the duo's friends within the Portland, Oregon music scene had been playing "The 20-Song Game." The rules were simple, playful and ambitious: Songwriters would arrive in their studios at prearranged times and spend all day recording 20 complete songs. When they were finished, they'd have a party, listen to the results and talk about the process—of taking the good with the bad, of letting creativity push past constraint, of simply making music in the moment. Brandon Summers and Benjamin Weikel took the spirit of the "The 20-Song Game" to heart, and forged ahead writing a new record.
