Thinknothink, Tele Novella, Flower Jesus

Zeppelin-creamers Thinknothink make their influences quite clear on “432 Dreams.” In the lyrics to Tele Novella’s recent single, it sounds like the Austin psych-poppers might be in the rut of a deep depression: “You can’t run, you can’t hide / You can’t feel anything inside / You want to die.” But peep a look at the song’s title, “Hair of the Dog,” and it’s clear that the band wrote a charming ode to the morning after. On “Buddha and Crowley,” over an arpeggiated backbone and thick marinations of tremolo, FJQ singers Torrin Metz and Rob Martinez walk the line between the titular poles of spirituality and the “worlds we live between.” But no words are necessary for the chorus, an excellent “Ah-ah” section carrying the song towards its faded outro. Recorded at Eastern Sun Studios in Austin, “Buddha & Crowley” is the first offering from Flower Jesus since its 2014 EP Cosmic American Music. It’s also the first acid-bitter taste from the new effort, Wilt. If the new tune is an indication, we can expect a heavier (re)incarnation of Flower Jesus.
