about

Influenced by R.E.M, Buffalo Springfield and Pink Floyd, Austin's Coffee Sergeants have been releasing immaculate slices of Paisley Pop since 1990 and their latest album "Purple Martin Sanctuary" may be their best yet.

Recommended if you like: Early R.E.M, The Green Pajamas, The Pillbugs

"high quality psychedelic pop / rock that would have not only fit in, but dominated the paisley underground scene of the mid eighties if only they'd had the insight to be born a little earlier."

"With a cinematic swash of strings that succumbs to a big Southern jangle, Austin's long-running psychedelic rangers unleash a pitch-perfect meditation on summertime languor. Opener "Virginia Creeper" sounds like it was cryogenically preserved in a mid-Eighties college radio time capsule, the familiar hypno-pop riff that bandleader Carey Bowman locks into a quarter century removed from Paisley Underground overreach emerging shiny and fresh. "Allandale" elevates the local neighborhood to near-mythical status with faraway nostalgia torn from the pages of a Jimmy Webb notebook, while the title track constructs a Lone Star variation on Andy Partridge's pastoral flights of whimsy. The Sergeants veer slightly garage-ward with "Sally White" before abruptly switching styles on twang-tinged barroom weeper "Start All Over." Eight albums in, Purple Martin Sanctuary still channels the adventurous spirit that made early efforts like Autumn Days and Moonlight Towers sparkle." -Greg Beets, The Austin Chronicle
