Archer And The Bull
The Archer and the Bull could not have found a better home than on California’s own DIY centric label with a soft spot for retro garage laden tunes, Burger Records. The Archer and the Bull sounds like if Foxygen, Olivia Tremor Control and The Zombies all had an orgy and produced this beautiful love child that came out covered in flowers and paisley. The Archer and the Bull spans 14 tracks that are warm and dripping with psychedelic undertones and melodic harmonies. The vocals tend to be heavy on the reverb side and they sound inviting yet mysterious. With sunshiney organs, gritty guitar and trippy acid flashback echoes, The Smoking Trees know how to evoke a feeling. And the tambourine is hot all throughout. It’s like Timothy Leary’s wet dream.
