The Whole Of Each Eye' sees Abronia cementing its very singular place in the canon of the broader psych rock universe. .
Abronia pulls from kraut rock, spaghetti Western soundtracks, doom, '60s UK folk, spiritual jazz, ritualistic drone, and infuse it all with the arid haze of deserts near and far.
The sound, with its ample use of lap steel and reverb-heavy electric guitar, is firmly rooted in a sun-baked strain of Americana.
But never too far from the surface are elements of European art rock in all of its guises (krautrock, psychedelia, prog) and a welcome wild card in the form of Keelin Mayer, who adds a Stooges-like squall with her saxophone and composed vocal turns à la Nico or former Swans singer Jarboe.
