Seven That Spells: My Mommy Wants to Kiss Your Mamma

This debut from Croatian instrumental band Seven That Spells is a rambling, psychedelic, acid rock freak out jam session, which pays homage to the late 60's-early 70's psych/prog scene. Think of a head on collision between Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, and Ozric Tentacles. The songs here are basically rocket fueled jam sessions, launching pads for guitarist Niko Potocnjak to hurl out molten shards of distorted, wah-wah laced solos, while the rhythm team of drummer Stjepan Jurekovic and bassist Tomislav Kalousek lay down a frantic groove. Keyboard player Hrvoje Niksic adds in plenty of noodling, chirps and blips, giving songs like "Merry Mary's Sweet Inferno" and "Space Cake Overload" that spacey feel. On "Black Liquorice/Tragic Boredom of the Universe", the band goes for a slower, more atmopsheric build-up before Potocnjak unleashes a torrent of violent guitar solos.

If you like frenzied wah-wah guitar indulgences, you've come to the right place. My Mommy Wants to Kiss Your Mamma will be a bit too repetitive and meandering for some, but there's no denying the talent of the players here. I'd say that a little more attention to actual songs might do these guys some good, but I think they set out to do exactly what they wanted to do here. The "jam from hell" album of 2005? Perhaps.
