here) made my list of top albums for the year. The news from the Bay Area is that the garage rock/surf pop/psychedelic experts have prepared another LP, titled A Swirling Fire Burning Through the Rye, planned to be released on November 11 via Empty Cellar Records (vinyl and CD) and Burger Records (cassette). Recorded by Sonny Smith of Sonny and the Sunsets and mixes and mastered by Melbourne's Mr. Musical Everyman Mikey Young, the album would deserve a listen based on its title alone. But I am quite sure that the content from this foursome will match the promise. And to prove me right (thanks, guys), the first song from the album has been released. Listen to "The Mile" below, and anticipate more Cool Ghouls in your life.
