Heron Oblivion’s debut album is like a masterpiece out of place and time. Bearing members of early aughts psych-rock torchbearers Comets On Fire and Assemble Head In Sunburst Sound, as well as East Coast psych-folk chanteuse and drummer Meg Baird (of Espers), Heron Oblivion glide effortlessly from hazy pastoral vibes to blazing heavy-psych excursions. Their singular sound owes as much to Neil Young and Black Sabbath as it does to Sandy Denny and Fairport Convention.
