The latest new thing in psychedelic prog-rock/folk/acoustic rising up with a debut LP on Partisan Records is a Swedish supergroup of sorts called The Amazing. Oh, what’s that? You’ve never heard of another rising psychedelic prog-rock/folk/acoustic quintet? Of course not because the sound of these five Swedes evades comparison or label, like so many of the greats in the music industry do today. On “Gentle Stream,” their second studio effort, the band opens with the seven-plus-minute musical journey “Gentle Stream,” which effortlessly glides through a myriad of genres and musical styles to create a sound both lush and captivating, qualities that remain notably present throughout the album. Listen for yourself below on Spotify, and if you’re at a loss for what to do this weekend, skip the drunken Allston basement shenanigans and head to Royale on Friday to see The Amazing open for Tame Impala. It’s guaranteed to be a good time.
