Back in March we premiered “Play & Be Saved,” a blast of expansive, starry-eyed euphoria from the UK psych-pop combo Oliver Wilde. Today we bring you the band’s sophomore album, Red Tide Opal In The Loose End Womb, in full. This is intricate music that never sounds labored, widescreen yet intensely personal, somnambulent yet breathlessly alive. It reminds me of Deerhunter in the way it incorporates passionate indie-rock fandom into a grand vision all its own. Dive into the dream world below.
Red Tide Opal In The Loose End Womb is out 5/5 via Howling Owl.
