I first came across Nanterre group Bootchy Temple when they joined the Howlin’ Banana label for their second album. I’ve always thought them to be on the verge of getting their sound just right. Obviously inspired by the same 60s/80s axis of jangle and psych as, let’s say The Mantles – they’ve never sounded better than on their new and fourth LP In Consummated Bloom. If the title (which is a poem by Emily Dickinson) has you thinking of 90s dreampop you’ve hit the mark. With a beautiful production, that will have you thinking of Blank Realm or Bomb Pops, the songs finally stand out and the guitars have been given heaps of space. Listen to first single “Nowhere Else” and look out for the LP in a few weeks.
