For the Season CD Due Oct 28 2005

For the Season is the second album from The Gris Gris, the sorceress San Francisco outfit assembled by psychedelic shaman Greg Ashley. For the Season is the definition of modern psychedelia while providing the vehicle for Ashley's catchy songwriting and complex arrangements.

SIDE ONE

For the Season: The first side (or half, if you belong only in the digital age) is one Suite of many interconnected songs and streams. To be found here: “Cuerpos Haran Amor Extrano” with its slow, hypnotizing Cramps-esque tremellowed-out guitar riffs, and “Down With Jesus,” a bouncy number with hand claps and all, ending with full-on guitar jam-tastic mayhem. The suite finale “Year Zero” has been a show-stopping favorite for over a year now and on record leads the listener through an epic jam towards a goose-bump inducing conclusion: The first half's triumphant end.

SIDE TWO

The second side, more traditional in that it is composed of 6 distinct tracks, houses a waltz (with drunken, god-fuzz guitar lead), “Medication #4"; the molasses dripping Acid of “Skin Mass Cat”; and the single, “Pick Up Your Raygun,” with an Ennio Moriconne flavored spaghetti entrance leading to a driving, throbbing rock and roll nugget. The title track, “For The Season,” an orchestrated, almost fragile (between the noise grooves), eastern psychedelic Zen arcade, provides an epic finale for the record.
