Dwellers Pagan Fruit on 180g LP
Pagan Fruit is the hotly anticipated second full-length from Salt Lake City group Dwellers. The new 9-song set follows in the still echoing sonic shockwaves of their enthusiastically received 2012 debut, Good Morning Harakiri, where the newly assembled trio of vocalist/guitarist Joey Toscano, bassist Dave Jones, and drummer Zach Hatsis pooled together their impressive prior musical credentials (Toscano with psych-metal adventurers Iota; Jones and Hatsis with doom/goth atmospheric bandits, SubRosa) with staggeringly powerful and memorable results.
Now, the terrible triplets are confident they can one-up themselves with Pagan Fruit: an album that both exceeds the lysergic power chord trip initiated on that first album, and expands the band’s creative horizons into realms heretofore unexplored. Recorded at world famous Boar’s Nest Studios, Pagan Fruit was expertly produced and engineered by Andy Patterson and mixed by Eric Hoegemeyer.
So on top of the already multifaceted influences, both subliminal and overt, picked up by discerning listeners from Good Morning Harakiri - influences ranging from Hawkwind to Soundgarden, Monster Magnet to Captain Beyond, Sons of Otis to the Screaming Trees - the songs/seeds found on Pagan Fruit reveal novel, dynamically varied musical touchstones as far reaching as vintage Neil Young & Crazy Horse and Goat’s Head Soup-period Stones.
So take a chance and take a bite of this forbidden, Pagan Fruit, if you dare; let its sweet and sinful juice run down your chin as reality-bending tunes like “Creature Comfort,” “Son of Raven” and “Call of the Hallowed Horn” blow your synapses to blissful smithereens.
