Review: Peacers – Self-Titled

National Music Reviews

Peacers – Self-titled
Drag City Records
Street: 07.17
Peacers = Syd Barrett + Marc Bolan

I’ll be honest: I could not get into this album. Peacers’ self-titled album was a bit too on-and-off for me. With the exception of a few tracks, I just never heard that catchy beat. Sure, there are some decent tunes on the album, but too often, it lacked rhythm. “Kick on the Plane” rocks and brings a nice upbeat rhythm. However, the somewhat aimless tracks outweigh the good ones for me. If you’re into that Animal Collective, all-over-the-place type of sound, you may dig this album—nonetheless, these dudes are talented. –Dylan Evans
