One of these dudes was in Sic Alps and the record's got Ty Segall all over it. Interested yet?
The self-titled debut from Peacers - Mike Donovan, Wendy Farina, and Eric Park -- is a sometimes trippy, sometimes stompin' sort of record. Mining a similar vein of rock to what Ty Segall does so successfully, Peacers are at their best when they underpin the jams with a strong hook ("Laze It" or the Flaming Lips-like "At the Milkshake Hop").
While stuff like "Heiress Chilton" is not going to set the world on fire but, rather, get stoned while it burns, a more direct effort like "Kick on the Plane" offers up sort of Royal Trux lite with a take on the Stones circa 1967 that is refreshing and hard not to like.
If "Mary Jane/Glorious Sunshine" provides more of the same, the chords of "Blume" give a listener something to grove to.
Wildly appealing in large dosages, Peacers by Peacers is a gem of the summer release season. Fans of Ty Segall will dig this even as their minds are expanded a bit.
Peacers by Peacers is out now via Drag City.
