ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On their debut lp, SikSik Nation maintain their garage roots while blending a barrage of pedal pushing, upbeat psychadelia. "Eight Styles to the Unholy" encompasses the band's true style while unleashing their pent up evolution. Experimentation and improvisation are a few things one could hear on tracks such as "oh so hazy" which melds together cello, reverb induced bass and a two minute unrehearsed jam session, as well as the repeated use of pedal board backing vocals on tracks like "grave blankets" and "mruders on my lips"

Not to worry however as the band has not lost its pop edge with songs like "lock me up'" and "reflection romancers." "Lock me up" delivers what it promises in a brit-pop esque sort of way with straight up 60's guitar jangle and sing along chours, while reflection revisits the band's darker dancier side conjuring up drum machines and fuzzed out guitar.

All things aside SikSik Nation continue to push the envelope of garage rock to a new place with new instruments and newer song arrangements. They continually strive to trap their noise and obscurities in a package that anyone could tear open and listen to. If you're thinking garage rock; think again.
