SLCene Suggests: The Wytches at Kilby Court

by on November 13, 2014


THE WYTCHES, KILBY COURT, Thursday, Nov. 13, 7:30 p.m., $8

If you can find a tastier batch of psych-tinged garage-rock from a younger group of cats than The Wytches, I’d sure like to hear it. The English band’s Annabel Dream Reader album, released in August, is a blast from a rock-y past, full of hooks and aggression. It’s hard to imagine how these youngsters came to sound like some ’60s crew straight off the Nuggets compilation, but so it goes. They met as students in college, and eventually formed a surf-rock sound that got the notice of Fat Possum records in the states, who released a single about a year ago. They signed with Partisan Records in the U.S. last winter to put out a full-length, and the glorious result was recorded in two days with former Coral guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones. If you’re a fan of old Jesus and Mary Chain, this group could be for you. Max Pain and the Groovies open.
