Reveling in cool guitar tones, gorgeous realms of reverb and the influence of psychedelic-pop forebears (The Beatles, Spiritualized/Spaceman 3, Rain Parade), Denver’s The Baltic is uniquely captivating. While “Turquoise” pays homage to the Fabs’ “Tomorrow Never Knows,” it’s a more daring and expansive composition with its dense, dreamy vocals and a variety of tempos. The enchanting, hypnotic “72 Hours” is almost an instrumental as its choir of voices blends into something luxurious. Very cinematic, film/TV oriented stuff. Most commercial for radio is “San Francisco,” a solid pop-rocker with lead vocal. We dig this band’s ambitious vision and urge them to master the production chops that can realize it.
