Spires that in the Sunset Rise – Psychic Oscillations [Review]

Released in 2020 on FPE Records

Artist: Spires that in the Sunset Rise

Format: LP

Psychedelic electro-acoustics and earthy minimalism take precedence in the latest from avant-chamber group Spires that in the Sunset Rise. The multi-instrumentalist duo of Ka Baird and Taralie Peterson ritualistically loop and layer a hypnotic tapestry of pre-verbal vocalizations, upright bass, flute, saxophone, synth, and autoharp, running each instrument through trippy stereo delays, visually represented by the two minute-apart clocks next to each other on the album cover. While not as witchy or jarring as the their early releases, Psychic Oscillations finds the band as entrancing as ever.
