Natives from San Francisko never deny their roots. Falseto and purely flower vocals are in an imaginary fight with poetics of Neil Young, grunge riffs of Pearl Jam and a great music of the whole quartet. Under the layers of post-apocalyptic terrors fantasy stories develop and offer rich songs that offend no one with a universal chivalry. „Imagine that you joined us at a dinner table inside a huge and vast space cargo ship until it explodes and parts in two halves,“ is an official band statement. It is hard to characterize Assemble Head In Sunburst Sound better. Their post-rock overflows with transcendental rhetoric, extreme emotions and wild easiness with much groove rhythms supported by genial solos and spiritual keyboards.

The opening L.A. Sacrifice colourfully serves cut riffs with roaring bass line; on contrary (Gone)´Round The Corner has an atmosphere of the 1960s by its vocal harmony and positive tempo and reminds of a Californian express a la Fleetwood Mac. Modern rock sounds fresh and takes you by the hand in bewitching way; it reminds of 1990s when the scene was ruled by the forgotten Black Crowes. It is not about invoking dead rock´n´roll heroes; it is actually happening. The final song Long Island Blues is a real sample of the matured body as the guitars are getting into your soul, the drums with bass moving slowly on a track whole rough angrily aggressive solo stirs still waters. Manzanita is a colourful collection of songs, entertaining and cleverly captivating piece with ambitions to conquer the world.
