With their debut album HOT WINTER, Scroll Downers brings a cooler full of beer and weed jams for the true swamp freaks screaming out there in the mud. Zachary “Zeke” Utz and David “Dave” Jacober (Dope Body, Holy Ghost Party) bring some formidable cops on guitar and drums, providing a perfect playground for the disobedient vocals of Lexie “Mountain” Macchi (Lexie Mountain Boys, Crazy Dreams Band). This trio serves up psychedelic incantations on a Black Sabbath rrrrriot tip, run through a filter of early 90s angst.

Mary Lattimore is a longtime favorite of mine. Her harp playing is often tagged as 'ambient' because it's enhanced by subtle delay and looping experimental treatments and is almost always instrumental, but here it finely is garnished with Meg Baird's achingly wondrous voice, and it is a perfect pairing. There is magical fairy dust in this record I'm pretty certain. Enter the Ghost Forest and be prepared to be enchanted. Joe Borreson
