Lift To Experience : These Are The Days

If you can get past the beard - and there are Sherman tanks who would find it exceeded their terrain capacities - Texan band Lift To Experience offer many rewards. Many of them spiritual should

you believe singer Josh Pearson, son of a Pentecostal preacher and a man who describes his band's debut album as being about "the end of the world where Texas is the Promised Land". The real miracle here is that they accomplish their visionary plan, blowing up a gloriously old-fashioned guitar duststorm that features an actual 3-2-1 countdown to judgement day. "We're simply the best band in the whole damn land and Texas is the reason", declaims Josh, which makes their My Bloody Valentine fervour seem all the more remarkable, a musical medium at odds with their ostensibly squirrel-trapping message.
