Naam – Vow – Review


Vow (Tee Pee Records)
release date: 6/4/2013

Psych-rockers Naam return with their most cohesive to date. With Hawkwind and Iron Butterfly on the mind, Namm forge their own meandering path through the cosmos and desertscapes. There’s some boogying on the star deck, if there be inter-planetary travel, and there’s campfire shadow dancing, if not. With “Of the Hour,” there’s more a sense of urgency than chilled space-walk/star-gaze. The keyboard player rips, and that’s not something you get to say often. Monster Magnet need look no further for an opening band, dig?
