WL//WH Review: The Marvelous New Album “The Spin Out” by the NEW AGE HEALERS

WL//WH Reviewhe Day  NEW AGE HEALERS  

On April 19, the New Age Healers from Seattle published their brand new opus “The Spin Out” LP. The troupe consists of multi-instrumentalist and lead vocalist Owen Murphy and a bevvy of seasoned scene veterans: Guitarist/keyboardist Jeremy Koepping (Voyager One and Grand Hallway), drummer Adam LeVasseur (Feed), bassist Allen Murray (Modern Athletics), and keyboardist Farkhad Saidmuratov (Kotlovan).

“The Spin Out” LP features 7 new tracks and showcases the band’s fearlessness and curiosity in exploring new paths and adventures in their music. The album is highly inspired and the band appears to have approached the studio sessions enthusiastically to capture their entire sonic universe. The album is relatively short, with no track over 3:49. However, it offers unexpected musical events with marvellous inspiration and performance. It blends the groovy, fuzzy, and melodic American post-punk style with the adventurous shoegaze streams of Seattle’s alternative rock heritage; all of these together, or on purpose and a case-by-case treatment according to the band’s needs. The first single to appear was the title track of the album and with a cool official video too!

One of the best features of the album (if not the best) is that each track seamlessly flows into the next, creating a continuous listening experience. This makes the album so captivating that it’s easy to hit the repeat button. It’s rare to find an album where every track is so intense that it could be a maxi single on its own. The group from Seattle, however, managed to create such a masterpiece. They have written an album that is simply marvellous. Also, the lyrics of the songs on the album contribute to its overall quality. They are nicely written and very targeted. I am curious, were the lyrics written before the music, or was it the other way around? I have been listening to “The Spin Out” LP a lot lately, and I can’t seem to figure out what came first. But in the end, does that really matter?

Some other songs that I can recommend from the album are, “Dying Moon”, “Operatic”, “Radiate”, and “All Wrapped Up”.  We have a record with a total runtime of less than 30 minutes, containing 7 tracks that flow seamlessly. The album not only avoids tiring you out but also ends in a way that brings it full circle to the beginning. What more could you ask for? Ιt is an amazingly comprehensive album. Here it is!!!

Keep up with New Age Healers:
