Track Of The Day #591: The Chemistry Set – Elapsed Memories


The Chemistry Set are primo purveyors in the art of psych pop and a band who at cruise control are head and shoulders above their peers, but when they hit their stride they are pretty much outer orbit and ahead of the curve.

‘Elapsed Memories’ is the lead out track on a limited coloured wax 7 inch (with poster) scheduled to arrive in record world at the fall of November. An immense skull top fracturing five and a half minute trip-a-delic odyssey trading upon a classic progressive psychedelia weaving and blooded in a richly honed classicism. That swoons to monumental hook heavy tides and a lushly driven baroque symphonic rush peppered in crystalline harp shimmers that ripple into momentary psyche white dream sequences to veer into a Love supreme cornucopia of colour replete with subtle washes of arabesque swirls murmured in ‘Ocean Rain’ garlands. Exquisite.
