Seattle rabble-rousers Night Beats specialize in squalling, reverb-blasted garage rock that openly pays homage to the psych and soul leanings of forbearers the Zombies. On September 24, the trio returns with Sonic Bloom, their second long-player and first for the Reverberation Appreciation Society, the record label offshoot of the Austin Psych Fest

The new album, streaming in its entirety below, starts with said Zombies and spirals outward from there, so that rollicking bar-blooze number "Satisfy Your Mind" winds up sharing space with drone-splosion "Catch a Ride to Sonic Bloom." Meanwhile "Rat King" is prone to punk-addled freakouts and "As You Want" is full of swooning ah's and ooh's.
