iTunes Review

The Wytches formed in Brighton, England, in 2011 and recorded their debut album, Annabel Dream Reader, on an analog eight-track machine in just two days under the supervision of producer Bill Ryder-Jones, formerly of The Coral. The primitive garage-psych trio of guitarist Kristian Bell, bassist Dan Rumsey, and drummer Gianni Honey ensured their primitivism was maintained at all (low) costs. There's a lean, mean sound at work. A track like “Gravedweller” is kept primal by minimizing any overdubs and giving Bell’s guitar a chance to feedback and bend in the breeze. Where so many other bands build walls and walls of sounds, The Wytches get away with a sparse, airy sound that makes each member’s part easily discernible. “Fragile Male for Sale” turns out to be a pleading psych-blues piece. “Robe for Juda” cranks up the reverb. The big surprise is when they strip down for a ballad like “Summer Again,” where they let an extra guitar and keyboard (vintage organ, natch) track into the mix.

The Wytches were formed in 2011 by vocalist and guitarist Kristian Bell and drummer Gianni Honey, who had previously been members of the band the Crooked Cranes. Originally from Peterborough, Bell and Honey relocated to Brighton to continue...
