Lucille Furs-S/T

Chicago psych group Lucille Furs (formerly known as “Shah Jahan”) are getting ready to release their debut LP digitally as well on transparent orange vinyl and cassette (via TMB Limited).

The self-titled album opens with the baroque pop of “The Fawn of Teal Dear,” which is strongly reminiscent of Syd Barret-era Pink Floyd, and “Thoughts and Words,” a paisley pastiche of jangly guitars, stately vocals and buoyant percussion.

Elsewhere on the album, Lucille Furs dabble in Nuggets-style garage rock (“Baby Blaise”), breathless Brit-pop (“Our Lady of Perpetual Frustration”), moody neo-psych (“Does it Matter to You”), Kinks-style pastoral pop (“Please, Give Her This Letter”) and, in the case of “Between Us Two/I Saw You,” contemporary psychedelic rock on par with the best of newer works by Temples, Tame Impala and The Horrors.
