Beaches – Distance (from She Beats, Chapter Music)

Beaches are five women from Melbourne who mine a tasty brand of psych rock with a permeating drone. The pick of their second album is this long distance kraut trip which features Michael Rother of NEU! on drums for added authenticity.

I love the way the welter of guitars to begin dissolves into a stew of blurry harmonies. Resilient, there's a word.
