NEW RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT MUSIK LABEL!!  Remember The Popdogs?  Remember the B-Leaguers?  The common denominator in both bands was James Styring who’s becoming the “chameleon of pop”, coming up with a different guise with each project.  James explains hgow thed band came together “The stars aligned!  I hadn’t seen guitarist William James Ward for many years.  One day he turns up at my door with a guitar and says, ‘let’s write some songs’.  So that’s exactly what we did!  Most of the songs come from a guitar idea from William. He’ll send a bunch of ideas over, and I’ll write to the ones that grab my attention and speak to me. He has so many great ideas, I’m sometimes spoilt for choice.  We just go with them, wherever they wanted to go, and we weren’t mindful of the classic three and a half minute limit, if a song took six minutes to say what it had to say, then six minutes it was. There were, and are, no rules.  I’d known Gaz Wilde, our drummer, through other projects, as he owns the studio where we record. He’s not only a great drummer, but an excellent sound engineer and producer. Things just fell into place, we’ve been lucky.  “Psychedelic rock has never quite gone away even after it morphed into progressive rock in the seventies. Every now and then, it rears its trippy head to excite and enthral rock fans.   Think of the Paisley Underground of the 80’s, or the 90-s Pop Underground contributions from Orgone Box, Green Pajamas, Hindu Rodeo and the like or the latest revivals from Temples, Hookworm, et al.  Whether psych-rock works in any context, is really a triumph of substance over form.  Enter The Ego Ritual and this 5-track eponymous EP. It has everything one might expect from psych-rock revivalist over the years. The songs here groove and rock out, with the appropriate riffs and sounds that approximate the psych-rock agenda but more importantly the songs are well-crafted in their own right and do not simply function as mere pastiches.” – Kevin Mathews/PowerOfPop.com  “Opener ‘Chakra Maraka’, is a sonic joy ride.  The sitar-esque intro lures one in until the thundering guitars land a sucker punch… and off we go on a melodic, guitar fueled roller coaster, moving at a pace that demands you hold on for dear life.  ‘Serenade the Ley Line’ is straight up power pop through paisley glasses, bouncing along into a catchy chorus that’s easy to remember even after a single listen.  ‘Days of Set’ shares a commonality with both of the aforementioned tracks – a bit more conventional, it’s melodic and carries a similar punch.  Catchy melodies and terrific songwriting carry the day, born from a decidedly paisley perspective.  And, it’s a guitar enthusiast’s dream. They’re gorgeous throughout the entirety of the record. This EP is a great way to start off 2019.  You’ll want to start writing 1968 on all your checks…. except the one to Internal Revenue! Not a good idea.” – Rich Rossi/PowerPopNews.com  GREAT!!
