Produced by Kramer
As its cover art suggests, "Ambergris" hearkens back to early 70's kraut and psychedelia, but the band's late 80's/early 90's indie/shoegaze vibe has not gone away. The album is still spacey and dreamy like its predecessor, but goes deeper with an eerie intensity and insistence that is magnified by Kramer's unique approach to production and mixing. This album is filled with unrepeatable moments...it lives and breathes with spooky beauty.
"The marriage of local space rockers the Flavor Crystals and legendary indie-producer Kramer proved to be a happy one. It's reminiscent of another Kramer-helmed disc, Galaxie 500's 1989 classic "On Fire," in that it sounds timeless and disconnected from any specific era or trend."
Key tracks: "Guppython," "Jumping Jacks"
