AN ODD EN­TRANCES CAS­TLE FACE, OUT 25 NOVEMBER Prog-minded San Fran garage rock­ers’ 18th re­lease.

Hav­ing pre­vi­ously mined acid folk, noise rock and garage punk, John Dwyer’s San Fran­cisco en­sem­ble veered off into space-rock lat­i­tudes for Au­gust’s hard-riff­ing A Weird Ex­its. A mere four months later, here’s the com­pan­ion piece. The trip’s less ball­son this time, with You Will Find It Here sug­gest­ing Pink Floyd’s As­tron­omy Domine meet­ing Space Rit­ual-era Hawk­wind, while the rhumba’ing love song At The End, On The Stairs echoes Can’s I’m So Green down to the whis­pery vo­cals. True, other tracks have less im­pact – see the flutey Jammed Exit (as op­posed to A Weird Ex­its’ Jammed En­trance) and the Ner­vous Tech (Nah John), both of which sound like they were pos­si­bly more fun to play than they are to lis­ten to. En­joy it along­side A Weird Ex­its for the full cos­mic gamut. IAN HAR­RI­SON

Lis­ten To: You Will Find It Here | At The End, On The Stairs
