 When the Sky Comes Down it Comes Down on Your Head by The Zephyrs

Album Review

by Matt Callard

Sometimes you can tell from the cameos whether a record is worth investigating.

When the Sky Comes Down it Comes Down on Your HeadSuch was the promise of 1999 debut It’s Ok Not to Say Anything, Edinburgh’s The Zephyrs recruited parts of The High Llamas, Mojave 3, Mogwai and Arab Strap for this British take on the then ubiquitous Big Americana sound of Mercury Rev, Flaming Lips and Grandaddy.

“Sleepy guitar washes over sunshine pop melodies”

The band layers sleepy guitar washes over sunshine pop melodies, occasionally stealing some of Mogwai’s instrumental fanfare. The result is a beautiful, ruminative mess of pure pop, guitar experimentalism and soaring strings.

A forgotten, modern psychedelic classic, then.
8/10
