San Fran fools Cool Ghouls have harvested a laidback, echoes and dust garage air for their great new record A Swirling Fire Burning Through The Rye (out now through Empty Cellar Records). This record may have some bare bones affinity with the garage rock set that are their geographical brethren, but missing is the frenetic energy and in its place a more ruminative, studied approach that can nonetheless be electrifying. There is something intrinsically American about the reverb laden fare that evokes the down home revelry and bonhomie that the likes of Creedence Clearwater Revival exulted in. Seeing as CCR have a hell of a lot of stone cold classics up their snakeskin boot, you can understand why I share such a soft spot for this record then.
