Product Description

Lazy Smoke-Corridor Of Faces-'68 US Garage Rock,Psychedelic Rock-NEW LP

Original copies in a plain white jacket of the very highly regarded Onyx label reissue from 1993.

In a genre built on obscured and unsung genius, 'Corridor Of Faces' transcends and stands out as a true psych masterpiece. Rising above any number of recently unearthed late-'60s anglo-pop platters, the sole offering from small town Massachusetts phenomenon Lazy Smoke is a cohesive, solid, classic album in every sense. Ten songs that weave into one-another, painting some beautifully drifty sonic picture as they go. The first remarkable trait of Lazy Smoke's sound is the lead vocals' uncanny similarity to John Lennon. If that likeness was the whole story, we would have a Beatles sound-alike on our hands, and that would be that. Upon digging just a little deeper below the surface, we instead find a darker tone and a patient, eerie and almost shut-in feeling resonating through the songs. While bands like The Beatles and The Left Banke were singing about love, lament and hallucinated travel experiences, the songs on 'Corridor Of Faces' get sincerely dark right away. Even the seemingly-light teenage love-themed 'Sarah Saturday' shares an undercurrent of on-the-edge uncertainty and dread. It's this undercurrent that calls to mind comparisons to 'Forever Changes'-era Love and the more damaged end of the pop spectrum. Originally privately pressed in MA in an edition of only 500 copies in 1968.
