Lucille Furs, Another Land Review
Connect with Lucille Furs: Facebook
Hailing from the Chicago DIY Scene, Lucille Furs decided their voice would be different than their psycho-pop constituents in the scene. Bassist Patrick Tsotsos will tell you about the music of post-war Greece where his grandparents grew up. Guitarist Nick Dehmlow will tell you about the garage bands of LA. Drummer Brendan Peleo-Lazar can fill you in on a late 60s London studio session as though he was running the tape machine. Mellotron/organ player Constantine Hastalis can show you a record by some long-forgotten folk singer who writes so earnestly you won’t forgive the world for forgetting it. Singer Trevor Newton Pritchett is unapologetic about what they borrow. “You might hear the Zombies for their kind of haunting and contemplative quality, the Kinks kind-of casual criticism, the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band for their distant romantic quality, Temples, Love, Diane Coffee, Charles Bradley or our Chicago people Post Animal, Jude Shuma and Whitney.” Now that half of the band is located in Los Angeles, you’ll be likely to hear those influences, too. “Another Land”, the title track from their upcoming album for Requiem Pour Un Twister is set to hit the streets on February 15th, 2019, and it’s the preamble first look at the psych pop quintet’s raucous sound.

It has a 60s psychedelia feel to it. Almost a Surrealistic Pillow throw back aesthetic, and it works.
