Yes, you've guessed it. This is one of those albums.
Psychedelic Witchcraft is an Italian band led by vocalst Virginia Monti. Heavily influenced by the seventies and the occult, this band takes the listener right back to the era of Iron Butterfly and Jefferson Airplane. In today's scene, they would perfectly fit in with bands like Jex Toth and Blues Pills. The four songs on this e.p. are prime examples of occult or psychedelic rock, rarely nudging towards hard rock. The whole breathes that vintage and straightforward sound. A sound that will maintain its warm feel in any format and on any device.
Several female fronted psychedelic rock bands have a problem with vocals, or at least that's my opinion. Virginia Monti doesn't. Her voice is a bit raw, pretty warm and has enough power to blend in perfectly with the music. Strangely, she also gives a modern touch. In the vocal parts of 'Angela' I'm often reminded of Anouk, which isn't bad at all. This album truly has a sense of timelessness.
The album is available as a digital download on their bandcamp page and is to be be released on limited edition 10" vinyl by Taxi Driver records. If you are a fan of anything vintage, stoner, occult and doom from the late sixties until today, you really should check this out. This is simply a marvellous e.p. with some very sexy rock music...
