Worthless is anything but what their name denotes. The trio, rounded out by co-songwriters and Drippy Eye Projections founders Curtis Godino (vocals, sitar, guitar) and Skyler Toski (guitar) with Nicole Zamfes on organ, have found a way to unequivocally teleport mind, body and soul back to the carefree Summer of Love. Reverb heavy vocals swirl and twirl between sitar strums and bongo beats making for a melty lo-fi piece of ear candy. Sit back and get liberated.

If you were in an industrial accident in the rubber bullet factory at which you are a shift supervisor, but for whatever reason that particular day you decided to use all your braided rawhide leather belts to sandwich pillows around your body instead of wearing clothes to work, and by so doing you survive the accident... this is that, but more guitar-forward. woe_bonnet
Holy smoke. One of the finest contemporary psych albums I've heard. Like an acoustic Annexus Quam meets Popul Vuh circa Brüder des Schattens meets Amon Düül circa Paradieswärts Düül meets traditional musicians from rural Iran playing Fairport Convention's Matty Groves. Forward thinking heads from southern Arizona making music as authentic and transcendent as it comes. Mushroom Head
