Overview

Psychedelia is back. Or, perhaps it never went away; this collection is a testament to and a helping hand for the independent British magazine The Ptolemaic Terrascope, which has the singular goal of exposing a wide range of music new and old with a vaguely psychedelic bent. Succour (and its companion Alms) initiates and familiarizes the curious reader with a generous helping of Terrascopic finery. Alongside well-knowns Spirit, Peter Buck of R.E.M., and Robyn Hitchcock, reside outfits with far-out handles like Olivia Tremor Control, Cul de Sac, and the Bevis Frond. The music is as trippy as the band names; while not inaccessible, it requires as open mind. In many instances, the overall effect of the music doesn't sink in for several listens. But once it does, the satisfaction is unassailable. Each participant has brought a world-class dish to this potluck; in addition to the United States and England, Japan, Norway, Australia, and New Zealand are represented here. In addition to showcasing some of the cream of the indie-rock crop, Succour raises some much-needed funds for a publication these artists hold near and dear to their hearts.
