If there was ever an artist that was perfect for a Bandcamp subscription, it’s Jeffrey Alexander. With a seemingly bottomless well of an archive with over 20 years’ worth of material from his solo ventures, various bands and side projects, you’ll certainly get the best bang for your hard-earned buck. Subscribers can gain access to brilliant exclusive archival records (both physical and digital) that often rival Alexander’s wider released content. The just announced Lost Bolinas Sessions record by the Dire Wolves Just Exactly Perfect Sisters Band is certainly a prime example of this.
Recorded in 2018 shortly after the instant-classics Grow Towards the Light and I Wasn’t Made for These Set Times with Glenn Donaldson of Skygreen Leopards and Red Pinks and Purples taking engineering duties, this is a mysterious and phantasmagoric record bristling with incinerating jams that flash and creep like mad auditory hallucinations.
Throughout the highly limited LP, the listener is treated to serrated acid guitar solos, haunting wails and violin moans that slither vigorously between the other instruments like a curious eel. This is Dire Wolves at the top of their game, completely unbridled and playing like as if they’re apart of some sort of ancient pagan ritual, sliding between reality and a trance-induced dream state.
