Albino Father
Street: 09.20.11
Albino Father = Black Lips + Jeff The Brotherhood
Earlier this year, Albino Father released Blanket, and they returned six months later with a far more mature album. The opening track’s intro sounds like it was stolen from a White Stripes album, but the vocal melodies are more reminiscent of the British Invasion. The album does fall into a far bluesier mood shortly after the title track with “Dirty Mirror” (a track laden with psych-rock guitar solos). “Deth Jam” is probably the highlight of the album, with less self-indulgent guitar solos, and a drum beat reminiscent of “Barnacle Beat” by The Growlers. Overall, this was a very solid release and fits well into the current psychedelic rock scene in Salt Lake.
