Fans of classic Spiritualized, the Figurines, and Mark Kozelek’s Sun Kil Moon will love this neo-psychedelic coma of autumnal-toned guitar riffs, pulsating bass lines, and spellbinding vocal drone.

Having played with the Dandy Warhols and Dead Meadow for a number of years, multi-instrumentalist Brian Coates finally dons his own cap for the Great Northwest. On his debut LP, The Widespread Reign of the Great Northwest, the Portland, OR–based songster slips into a neo-psychedelic coma as autumnal-toned guitar riffs and pulsating bass lines drift alongside his spellbinding vocal drone. Songs such as the reverb-heavy ìKnow What I Meanî and the druggy, slow-core jams ìReverieî and ìReady or Notî are as vivid as the project’s namesake. Yet within such complex arrangements lies the simple tune of love. For fans of classic Spiritualized, the Figurines, and Mark Kozelek’s Sun Kil Moon, it’s high time to discover the Great Northwest.
