Sybris | Sybris (Flameshovel)

The band’s self-titled debut is a rather low-key rock record, with a feel that is heavy at points yet dreamy and spacey at the same time.

The vocals of Sybris frontwoman Angela Mullenhour so resemble those of Edie Brickell, it’s uncanny. The band’s self-titled debut is a rather low-key rock record, with a feel that is heavy at points yet dreamy and spacey at the same time. Many times, the songs commence with the guitars and bass buried in the mix, leaving Mullenhour out front, only to build to a loud and fuzzed-out crescendo. This technique proves rather effective as evidenced by “A Gentlemen, an Automobile,” “You’re Only Confident in Your Insecurities,” “Breathe Like You’re Dancing,” and “The Clowns Were Hilarious.” In addition, Sybris also has its share of gate breakers as they kick off with the decibels up on “Hobo Detail Shop” and the Pixies-esque “Neon.” Sybris is a rather nifty record; space rock fans take note: You and Sybris may make a fabulous couple
