"A perfect distillation of West Coast psych teamed with a perfectly fuzzy cloaked hard edge, a knack for ridiculously catchy riffs and great keys Outer Minds appear to be far from out of their minds.
Chicago's explosive and underrated Outer Minds have finally come to the surface after simmering in the underworlds in several different incarnations over the past few years, and with unbelievably great results. Sharpening their sound into a legion of '60s pop/psych textures and nuances normally reserved for the baroque set with their impeccable glockenspiel-laden arrangements, Outer Minds weave a rich web of sound around impossibly perfect hooks and deliever an impressive EP worthy of your immediate attention. Led by Zach Mediaris (Black Beauties, Lover!) and A-ron Orloewski's (Baseball Furies, Lover! Dirges) fine assemblage of rough-cut harmonies, the band has gone through more name and roster changes than most, but once the current lineup coalesced into the tight-knit unit performing today, everything fell into place to create this sumptuous wall of cound that will blow your little mind to bits." - Andrew Tolley
