Amoeba Review

11/25/2013

More pummeling country-fried Southern garage boogie from Walston & co., on this, their sixth album. Glimpses of the Faces or Ziggy Stardust appear here, with pounding tense-knuckled piano and wailing falsetto background vocals driving narrative stompers through fuzzed-out swamp territory, equal parts elegant gleaming white plantation columns (there's a healthy dose of scraggle-voice rock dandy here, a la Mott the Hoople) and occasionally Sabbath-indebted sludge-riffage oozing from the foundation. An impressive example of what a band can do with just their own hands, minds, and butts, Essential Tremors is a romantic throwback to an era where not just art-rock got to be ambitious, but when a winking undercurrent of concise and theatrical glitter beneath a layer of down-home dirt was just as subversive and difficult as something more explicitly academic.
