Amazing - Gentle StreamVendor: Partisan

When a band takes a name like The Amazing, they'd better have the chops to back it up. Happily, this Swedish outfit, a collective headed by Reine Fiske and singer/songwriter Christoffer Gunrup, are masterful enough to take that mantle on.
Gentle Stream is widescreen, panoramic, horizon-reaching stuff. An elegantly constructed record of moody psychedelic majesty, it comes with a great dose of CSNY-style Laurel Canyon bliss. Its nine songs clock in at a luxurious 50-minutes, during which astral guitars intertwine in serpentine solos, horns blast rainbow melodies, and Gunrup's flute-like voice floats elegantly over the sunset sounds.
