Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound 

Wednesday, Jul 8 2009

Despite the trippy name — and having worked with Fucking Champs guru Tim Green — local ensemble Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound isn't quite as heavy as you might expect. Sure, on the group's third album, When Sweet Sleep Returned, "Two Birds" is all psych-curdled sprawl, complete with vocal harmonies from members of Sleepy Sun. And both "Clive and Lyre" and "Drunken Leaves" incorporate screeching waves of garage-y distortion. But in other places, the band summons the Byrds and the Mamas and the Papas, taking a morning stroll through the dewiest of meadows. Something for everyone, then.
