Our latest split is returns to the Pacific Northwest with two exciting psych projects: Natasha El-Sergany's somesurprises, since expanded into a full band for their Doom Trip group debut, and Brenan Chamber's solo vehicle supercandy. Both sides are atmospheric and engrossing, a witches' brew that draws from a variety of influences. While somesurprises offer five tracks with an oblique, almost noirish tint, supercandy follows a similar shade in a more cosmic direction.
