New striking strokes

The duo stated this about the record on their website: “It feeds LSD to a broken Moog synthesiser. Luke Haines sings songs about God, provides an occasional strum on his guitar, and blows Pan’s flute,” “Scott McCaughey (The Young Fresh Fellows) plays the bass and mellotron and Linda Pitmon (The Baseball Project) bangs the ritual drum. Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Group) drops in and has a nightmare in the key of doo-wop.”
With that statement they also shared the first single, titled
Psychedelic Sitar Casual. A psychedelic jingle-jangle rocker
that sounds as a, yes, early R.E.M. cracker.
