It's become blatantly evident that Seattle's The Pharmacy
is unscathed by inserting bits of imperfect childhood sentiments and large-hearted emotional openness in their music. Therefore when the group released a new single entitled "Masten Lake Lagoon", the sound immediately triggered a euphoric nostalgia that creeps up with head-bobbing tendencies.
Sure, upon the release of their previous full-length album, Stoned & Alone
(2012), there was a bit of uncertainty surrounding the band's next move. After all, there is a small expectancy of carelessness and lack of novelty when 70s psychedelia gracefully collides with marijuana infused garage-rock. However, where fallibilities are often the detriment to a band's progression and uniqueness, in regards to The Pharmacy's newest single, it should be noted that its imperfections are what create a uniquely lavish track that you can't seem to walk away from.
Yes, we have heard all of these sounds before, but if ever there was a time to get back into stoner-rock it would be during a hot summer day when twisting that damn car radio knob a thousand times is just out of the question. "Masten Lake Lagoon" is exactly what you need during that endless drive to the waterfront.
The Pharmacy's new record, Spells
, is set to arrive on August 12th via Old Flame Records.
