Ganglians Monster Head Room
- Words: Chris Sabbath
- Label: Woodsist
- XLR8R Rating: 9/10
The Woodsist banner has put out one psych nugget after the next in '09, and this stunner from Ganglians is the brightest hunk of gold to land in my lap thus far. Like a thunderous stomp straight out of the dusty Topanga Canyon, "Lost Words" and "Valient Brave" rattle and jolt with a Crazy Horse-stoner jangle in the sizzling California sun, while you can almost smell the campfire smoke and hear the coyotes yelping in the distance on the fried folk-isms of "To June" and "Modern African Queen." However, the real charm and beauty of Monster Head Room are those sunny Beach Boys harmonies that just don't stop.
