Brian Jonestown Massacre: Aufheben
Buy! - ('a')
Named after the abstract German word that can be translated into multiple meanings, including "to lift up," "to abolish," and "to sublate," the latest album from this consistently morphing band led by founding member Anton Newcombe is a strong, transportive set of shoegaze/psych/rock mixed with eastern influences. Unpredictable, confident, and impressively well-crafted, Aufheben is aptly-titled as it's difficult to pigeonhole whilst covering a wide range of gauzy sounds. 5/4/2012 - Alex
