Album Review

Continuing their nearly unbroken string of unclassifiably terrific albums, Norwegian trio Motorpsycho deliver one of their finest with the epic Black Hole/Blank Canvas. A two-disc, 17-track set, Black Hole/Blank Canvas leans more to the group's drony psychedelic side than its heavier acid rock sound, with a stronger than usual overlay of sweetly melodic pop hooks to go along with all the pleasurably noisy guitars. The most accurate musical comparison is mid-'90s Yo La Tengo (circa Painful and Electr-O-Pura), although the band's fondness for '70s hard rock crops up from time to time as well. Most notably, the closing "With Trixeene Through the Mirror/Dream with Open Eyes" blends falsetto vocals and big guitar riffs in the tradition of vintage Boston or Blue Öyster Cult.

Otherwise, Black Hole/Blank Canvas may well be Motorpsycho's best album yet, or at least their strongest since 2002's It's a Love Cult.
