5.0 out of 5 stars Luscious and loved-up 13 Jan 2012
By Nerse
Format:Audio CD
Really great albums always have a very distinct atmosphere - you put them on and they draw you into their sonic world until you are released at the end of the last track. Peaking Lights' blissful '936' does exactly that, submerging you in its lazy, sexy, intoxicated world for around 50 minutes before sliding you out into bed or wherever you feel like going next.

The record has a sort of jacuzzi drug party feel about it. The opening track 'Synthy' is a relaxing hypnotic swirl, easing you in and passing you a beaker of special punch. Second track 'All The Sun That Shines' turns on the bubbles with its dubby percussion and loping bassline, also introducing a naive, druggy vocal style which floats above the warm water of synth at various points throughout the record. The vocal comes in male and female forms, both reverby and simple and completely apt for the music.

As the album progresses the listener only sinks deeper into a mesmerised childish state of joy. A particular euphoric highlight is 'Tiger Eyes (Laid Back)', which has probably the strongest groove on 936, and a great chiming sound as well. Closer 'Summertime' gives your ears and brain a final swirl by layering a syncopated churning below the surface. This intensifies the whole blend of Peaking Lights' sound and provides a great mood to end on.

Thoroughly recommended for anyone who likes dub, psych, kraut, synth, music, drugs, music and drugs, jacuzzis, or lying in bed until the afternoon. Apparently they are working on a follow up which is a night time counterpart to this record. I expect great things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Album 16 Aug 2013
By Michael
Format:Audio CD
I mostly write reviews for 60s/70s psychedelic and progressive rock, but seeing as incredibly there are only four reviews of this album (I was expecting to find a few dozen), I thought I should throw in another opinion. This album has a lot in common with classic experimental psych of the late 60s - echoey, spacey vocals singing haunting melodies over interesting analogue-sounding sound effects, which again recall those 60s/70s devices you don't get today. But they take things a step further by adding powerful dub basslines and more modern rhythms. I don't know from what musical direction most other fans of this band are coming, but I would think that anyone who likes psych, progressive or experimental rock would find a lot to like here.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good backing. Irritating vocals. 29 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD
A partially valid, and certainly muscially adventurous, outing that would be very much better without the repetitive, toneless and very annoying female vocals. This is particularly evident on "All the sun that shines", on which the vocal consists principally of the title repeated ad nauseum on two notes for much of its 7 minute running time. It's a shame because the lo-fi dub sounds backing the vocals are not bad at all. Opening track "Synthy" is an instrumental and much the better for it - then along come the vocals on the next two tracks and I end up wishing she would just SHUT UP!.

5.0 out of 5 stars love songs, rays of light through a foggy haze 15 Nov 2011
By intrnlmdnyc - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Peaking Lights' style is very rhythmic and dense-sounding, with heavy and distorted drum patterns and baselines taking up much of the aural space. The remainder is filled by compact, sunny guitar riffs and the lead singer's deadpan vocals, both of which break through the low-end mix enough to convey the sentiments of what are mostly love songs. So there is a captivating dichotomy between dense sound and a simple and clear lyrical message. As a result the lead singer sounds hypnotized and transfixed by the allure of the person she is singing to.

This is a very intriguing and original album. One of my favorites of 2011.
5.0 out of 5 stars This is my morning time wake up music 7 Jan 2014
By G. Rao - Published on Amazon.com

Peaking Lights fits into that Caribou-Blue States sort of psychedelic electro-pop style that seemed like a happening thing in 2002-03. Their version is little bit dubbier, a little bit trancier, and perhaps a bit less rock n roll by extension. Their songs have a lot of layered synths and percussion, with little stabs of high reverb surf guitar and stuff as accents. Indira's voice is syrupy smooth and narcotic, like a prescription-only cough medicine.

The album Lucifer is also pretty great.
