With so many bands in the Twin Cities recording great psychedelic rock, it's hard to keep track of them all. One that may have been lost in the purple haze is Panther Ray, who quietly released their first EP, Parallel Motions, last spring. The disc combines classic psych sounds with '80s jangle and modern shoegazin' rock, all held together by nuanced studio craftwork. On Daily Season, their new EP out this week, Panther Ray has captured some rich guitar shredding that sounds like a lost recording of Arthur Lee and just the right amount of trombone.
