They're still patient yoga masters when it comes to letting their psych-metal advance, retreat, well up and wig out -- five of six tracks surpass nine minutes, and the Hawkwind-ish space-jam finale lasts 19. But this L.A. quintet is pushing its sound harder these days. The doom in "Corryvreckan" attains a Neurosis-level density, and vocals are more prominent; "Running in Circles" even has proggy harmonies. More than ever, though, keyboards provide the dominant rhythmic voice, especially a candelabra-invoking cathedral organ that occasionally seems to quote "Funeral for a Friend" by Elton John.
