First Listen: Spiritual Vamp by Silvero

Whoa.
Pretty cool.
So that we're all on the same page: Silvero is a four-piece garage-rock band from Bend. This summer they recorded Spiritual Vamp, a seven-song album. It's good. (NOTE: For a proper review, read next week's issue as Sound editor Ethan Maffey takes on Silvero and their new album).

Songs on the Spiritual Vamp sound like: the slowest Black Sabbath song you can think of (a good thing); something from a brooding, trippy, math-rock band (don't know any of those); something from a female-fronted early '80s alt-punk band, like The Raincoats (also a good thing). Oh, and at least one of the male/female duets sounds Moldy Peaches-ish.
Some songs are slow and thoughtful like many of the songs from James Ryan Adams' other band, Rural Demons.
