LP version. 2014 release. Mexican psych duo Lorelle Meets The Obsolete's third album. Recorded by Cooper Crain (Cave, Bitchin Bajas) and mastered by Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3). Chambers is a surprisingly direct record that, despite locking into a pulsating krautrock groove on "What's Holding You?" and getting lost in a fog of white noise on "Music For Dozens," always retains a very human heart and soul. There is diversity, too -- from the slide guitar and driving bass on the out-of-control "Sealed Scene" to the narco-blues of "Dead Leaves" and the folky, melancholy "Grieving." The big influences that came into play while making Chambers were Austin psych-rockers Holy Wave's Knife Hits album and the Ty Segall and White Fence collaboration Hair, which more than explains the garage-rock sensibility that pervades here. Also mentioned in their impeccable list of influences are Nico, Syd Barrett, Broadcast's The Noise Made by People, Albert Camus's existentialist tour de force "The Myth of Sisyphus," and Julio Cortázar's short stories.
