Sciflyer’s Lost Album They Only Believe In the Moon

Northern California Duo Releases Decade-Old Record


These six big, slow-burning songs are evocative of many of the 1990’s indie-rock giants. There are vocals somewhere in there, buried and reverbed to ensure your mind is roasted in maximum textural absorption. Most songs here flame as fiery as the sun in sizzling repetition, but the somewhat slow-dive-y cold star “Slowfire” is the best burner of the bunch. Something of a lost album recorded almost a decade ago, it’s good news Sciflyer found a way to release it. For fans of the noisier indie rockers and rawer shoegazers of yesteryear, this will be total comfort music.
