In the Red have finally come through and released the long-awaited new album from Portland garage group The Lavender Flu. After last year’s experimental record – to say the least – Barbarian Dust is actually the first studio recording they’ve done. It includes a track named after their 2018 album, “Mow the Glass”, and sure, this record has a similar feel but also features some longer cuts such as the title track. Here they sound a whole lot like the Oh Sees playing the soundtrack to Candy or Easy Rider. It’s a simple but ingenious move from the Gunn brothers (one of whom previously played in the still unsurpassed Hospitals and The Hunches).
Terrible album review. Did not even get the last name right of the band members which are brothers Chris and Luke Gunn. A little effort into what you do please.
