Valet - Naked Acid

Having recently discovered Honey Owens' first Valet album, this sophomore album (out on Kranky) comes as a pleasant surprise. Even more haunting than one the first, her voice really stands out. The atmosphere reminds me a bit of German krautrock, but in a more American, bluesy kind of way. Definitely one of the best psychedelia-albums of this year. Added you find the song 'Fire', one of the more quiet ones, but also a highlight of the album.
"These songs were Inspired by the Pacific Northwest landscape, semi-conscious dream states and the idea of one's DNA code being accessed as eternal memory."
