The Diamond Center - Crystals for the Brass Empire

The former Richmond, VA beloveds, now residing in Austin, TX, are back with a fresh full-length that is easily their best work to date, and it sounds as though their "southern gothic" take on the psych genre has reached full bloom. Sinister yet enticing. Dark yet brightly burning beneath the hot desert sun. Can't recommend this one enough. The tri-label limited vinyl release is available to order through EggHunt Records/Funny/Not Funny Records/Steady Sounds.
