The Search Party - Montgomery Chapel (1969)

Posted by Amelia Swhizzagers On 1:27 AM

A primitive Christian folkrock LP which hits some truly unique moods and sounds on about 2/3rds of the tracks. Obviously inspired by the westcoast psychedelic sounds of the era, the Search Party take compositions by their spiritual mentor, a Catholic middle-aged priest, and turn them into primitive California garage folkrock and psych with fuzz leads and raw vocals! Most Christian folkrock LPs suffer from still having one foot left in Sunday School, but these young seminarians have definitely broken through to the other side. Side 1 ends with an unparalleled 9-minute downer folkrock excursion with heavy soul-searching lyrics that alone makes Montgomery Chapel worth checking out, but beware -- it’s crude, even the female vocalist has a strange edge. Unrehearsed confessions from a basement Music Emporium.
Hauntingly beautiful!
