Shiny, Stained-Glass Organ Ripples

Posted by on Sat, Dec 22, 2012 at 10:21 AM

(Barboza) First known as the Royal Seas, then as the Summer Lovers, the Comettes make magical, psychedelic, stained-glass music—colorful and shiny, with ripples of organ, and whooooa boy, do I love an organ. I feel like I just talked about this, but who cares! Organs! Are! So! Good! I'm also really digging the slightly sorrowful vocals and lazy melodies they've got going on, and when you add in the sailing guitar riffs, it feels like floating through space on a shag carpet. This show marks the Comettes' first album release, if you're scrambling for a last-minute winter-solstice gift idea. Just sayin'.
