Vibrasonic - Into Sunshinedotdotdotdotdot
artworkThere's something magical about this band. Vibrasonic play surf instros strained through psychedelic tones totally different than the Mermen. It's very pop-psych oriented, with sitar effected guitar, phased production, and more. These guys occupy the gap between Pink Floyd and Time Box, and Dick Dale. I have enjoyed everything I've heard from them to date! In fact, I'll go one further...I think these guys could be among the best three or four envelope pushers around. That's a short list, shared only by the Mermen, GT Stringer, and maybe Brazil 2001.
Picks: Into Sunshine, The Sea Of Stars, If I Were A Rich Man, Into Sunshine [Phase Mix]

Track by Track Review


Into Sunshine dotdotdotdot
Psychedelic (Vocal)

Oscillating psychedelic vocal that is utterly captivating.

The Sea Of Stars dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Great! A new version (remix) of the tune from their CD, this time all phased out...surf with mega phase shift! Stellar! Fantastic melodic crystalline surf after the "Journey To The Stars" direction, but not like that at all.

If I Were A Rich Man dotdotdotdotdot
Surf Psychedelic (Instrumental)

If ever there was doubt that Vibrasonic was a surf band, this should shoot it in the head. Major fury and fire, written with "Miserlou" in the heart. Great psycho-surf guitar tones!

Into Sunshine [Phase Mix] dotdotdotdotdot
Psychedelic (Instrumental)

Grand superphaseshift remix of the first track. Superb, even better than the original mix!
