See, Brian Jonestown Massacre, THIS is how you do Stones-influenced dreampop. Shit, Black Cab should just go ahead and offer classes in how to make a 60s rock influence interesting because this is fucking masterful. Their third album, Call Signs, is set to drop next month, and by now Black Cab have pretty much refined their celestially hypnotic & cavernous thang to the point where each track is like slamming down the darkest, sweetest coffee you've ever had in a dive in Istanbul or some shit. Completely overwhelming. Endorphin extravaganza. Rescue is maybe less kraut and more shoegaze than Black Cab's last record, Jesus East, which could mean that these guys finally get to see some financial recompense instead of just being fellated by critics. Fucking primo.
