      Dora Flood "Highlands" is released this week,

      One of the last remaining survivors of the powerful early '90s
      dreampop/shoegaze explosion (pity, that), this San Francisco group
      has remained true to its original aerial inclinations while growing
      more overtly and nicely psychedelic with each release. On this, their
      fifth offering, the two-guitar quintet based around
      guitarist/singer/songwriter Michael Padilla aim for a more sprawling
      miasma that reminds of The Church when those Aussies are clicking.
      They still do the Byrds/Bunnymen swooping/sweeping guitar lines well
      (see the fine, fine favorite "Phantasm") when it pleases them, and
      they can affect a romantic House of Love hush (the organ-fed,
      fat "Experimental Phase"). But behold, to start Highlands, they try a
      new wrinkle drone-psych that hints of early Pink Floyd and Spaceman 3
      on "Stargazing" and "The View." Whereas later they let one guitar
      glisten while another reverberates, evoking a cleaner Rolling Stones'
      Satanic Majesties meeting Robert Fripp. You like a band that hasn't
      lost its sense of exploration after more than a decade, and these
      guys always transports listeners to lofty places full of dusty
      enchantment.
