POWER OF POP MUSIC ALBUM REVIEW: COMET CONTROL – CENTER OF THE MAZE

ALBUM REVIEW: COMET CONTROL – CENTER OF THE MAZE

comet-control

Background
Comet Control were formed in 2013 around the time Toronto band Quest for Fire announced their breakup. The band includes two former members of Quest for Fire – Chad Ross, on guitar and vocals, and Andrew Moszynski, on guitar – as well as Nicole Howell, on bass, Jay Anderson of BIBLICAL, on drums, and Christopher Sandes, on keys.

Strengths
The album opens with galloping drums and surf guitar motives – the signature elements of classic psychedelic rock – and the rest of this sophomore effort simply delivers some of the best that the modern day psych-revival can offer. Filtered through 2016 lens, Comet Control takes every development of psychedelia since 1967 (i.e. prog-rock, stoner-rock and even dream-pop) and produces a timeless confection of deadpan vocals, wall-of-sound guitars and motorik rhythmic drones.

Highlights
“Dig Out Your Head”, “The Hive”, “Sick in Space”.

Sounds Like
My Bloody Valentine, Swervedriver, Ride.

Bottom Line
One of the forerunners of the current crop of psych-rock revivalists, which is really saying something!
