White Canyon & The 5th Dimension (Spectral Illusion)
Crank this to 8.2 of 11
Genre: Psychedelic rock, Shoegaze
Sounds Like: Warlocks, Moon Duo
1. Spectral Illusion (6:12)
A haunting beginning leads towards some mellow psychedelic shoegaze. The ethereal male/female vocals float effortlessly over the music. The song slowly builds with heavy some shoegaze jamming. It's great opening track to lure us in.
2. Seven Kingdoms (4:26)
Continuing on the same path as the previous song, this one hits with great guitar rhythms.
3. Electric Ghost (4:10)
This track takes bit of a different approach. The percussion has some weird mellow 80s goth feel. It's a very cool song that seems to stick with you.
4. Sensitive Fate (5:53)
An extremely relaxing song that makes your mind wander. The build up towards the end is brilliant.
5. Endless Sea (9:05) Standout Track
This song captures everything we love about this alum. It's moderately heavy and all consuming. The guitar reverb has such a wonderful sound combined with great dual vocals.
6. Look up the Sky (Nico's Dream) 3:36
Love the acoustics here, it's a welcome addition to the album and the flutes are icing on the cake.
7. Oroboros (7:31)
Another heavenly psychedelic tune. This one of the more heavier tunes with spacious jamming to close the album.
Spectral Illusion is the perfect combination of psychedelic rock and shoegaze. Fans who love heavy music will appreciate this one
Great album art the portrays the music perfectly
White Canyon & the 5th Dimension really tap into your psyche with this album. It's easy to get lost in this one
Enjoy some Passing Clouds Witbier from Rockwell Brewing in Missouri. We love the name of the brew as it's fits with the music at hand, plus this 5.2% wheat beer has a light taste that pairs well with Special Illusion.
