About this item

Australian psych four-some The Lazy Eyes release their debut album Songbook. The new album follows a pair of startling EPs, and comes as The Lazy Eyes prepare for some high profile tour support alongside The Strokes next year. Songbook ramps things up a notch, and it's led by bruising new single 'Fuzz Jam'.

SongBook is a world unto itself, and like every good fantasy world, it abides by its own logic. Step inside: the colours are a little brighter; things move a little slower, but they’re liable to get inordinately faster in the blink of an eye. The landscape is all hard brick and plasterdust — stoner lurch and Sabbath-y chug — until a hook bursts forth, unexpected, like a flower from concrete. Suddenly you’re in a garden in full blossom, and you didn’t even notice; you walked a mile without taking a single step.

STAFF COMMENTS

Andy says: A cosmic explosion combining early Tame Impala, both Pink Floyds (Syd and after) MGMT, the Zombies and even The 3 o'clock; this is a supremely melodic and groovy debut album.
