Hailing from Winnipeg, Canada, Dizzy Mystics serves up, Wanderlost. This debut album is best described as psychedelic rock seasoned liberally with dashes of funk and metal. The musicianship on this album is indeed dizzying. Letter opens the album with intense groove. The Frequent See, Consistent Seas exemplifies the surprising catchyness and melody buried beneath the psychedelic chords and prog-rock rhythms. Finally, Diamond Duller changes and shifts tempo with an endearing and clangy energy reminiscent of Tool or Primus.
The musicianship on this album is astounding (did I just hear a mandolin!?) and there are moments that are surprisingly radio-friendly given the complex ingredients of this record. That being said, listening to this album is an experience not unlike like eating at a restaurant run by a talented young chef. There are a few misses along the way and the content doesn’t always stick to your ribs but it’s an experience you won’t soon forget.
