Now available on cd, the long-awaited, second full-length album by the UK's The Higher State! A dozen new tracks spanning the group's wide spectrum of sound, from jangly folk punk to fuzzed out, revved up, garage psychedelia. Thoroughly dosed throughout with their infectious vocal harmonies and incisive, reflective lyrics. This special enhanced cd comes with two videos, both of which are exclusive tracks for the cd release: 'Automatic Motion' and a cover of the Thursday's Children classic 'You Can Forget About That'. The new album, Darker by the Day, comes well-prepared to move your feet as well as your mind!
'The Higher State are far more than a mere pudding bowl recreation, they're a valid voice for the new bohemia; time bandits who have shared coffee n smokes with Gene Clark and Roky! And let's cut the flowery superlatives (words on paper mean little when music is the topic) let me just say that The Higher State are the only current US 1960s styled garage band that you need to hear' -
