Nope – Revision (The Audacious Art Experiment)

SH | Nope, with their wonderful name, are billed as Krautrock-Psychedelia, but this sounds more to my ears like Vertigo era progressive, and I mean that as a compliment. Apparently, this sort of thing has been happening all over West Yorkshire as I dwindled obliviously towards my fourth decade. Dirty octaves scudding across frets bring this closer to stoner-drone, and bong references confirm the fact, although the sub-Fahey ‘Todmorden’ drifts in an appropriately listless, hippified manner: Nope are at their best when hammering it, trying to hit the third eye on a monochord, music which always changes, but never does.
