MIDDAY VEIL, ALTO, GRAPEFRUIT
(Rotture, 315 SE 3rd) For a few years, Seattle's Midday Veil seemed like an ominously vague, dark shape moving slowly and sleekly under the surface of the Northwest's psychedelic music scene. After an under-the-radar debut LP and two well-received improvised cassette releases, you knew that thing was going to come roaring out of the water at some point—it was just a matter of when. Now is the time. The exquisitely named six-piece's second full-length studio album, The Current, is a heady cloud of heavy incantations, cosmic krautrock, Middle Eastern meanderings, and synthesizers set to stupefy. The result feels spiritual and highly rhythmic, like blissful, heavy-lidded hymns for the transcendental traveler seeking a new shiver down the spine. BEN SALMON
