Filled with energy, wit, charm, and enthusiasm, this group from Baltimore delivers a magical blend of rock, psychedelic soul, and post-punk passion to enliven a whole record. Released under the label Tiger Style, the Convocation Of... provides a variation of textures, tones, flavors, and musical colors with striking guitars, raving rhythms, beautifully melodic keyboards, and compelling vocals. Pyramid Technology is the kind of record that requires repeated listening for further satisfaction of the listener's ears and tastes. In the midst of each soulful listen, one will not be left without fresh new instrumental and vocal surprises and lyrical artistry. A band with reverence to their craft and a powerful sense of endurance, the Convocation Of... have made it this far in their veteran careers to produce a memorable piece of music. Look for greater things to come for a group of such exuberance and innovative fervor.
