It's when the band let go of any pre-conceptions they're holding onto that 'Same Sun, Same Moon' truly shines as the pinnacle of their potential.

Writing an album in a studio built on ancient Native American lands in the mountains of east San Diego is always going to add a level of spirituality to your work. However, for the Californian Blues Rock duo Little Hurricane, their third studio effort sees the band immerse themselves in a helter-skelter of Psychedelia that deals with peace, love, and unity in the modern world.

Whilst the writing of the record was still in its infant stages, guitarist and vocalist Anthony "Tone" Catalano was beckoned by the mountain, resulting in an ominous twenty-eight mile barefoot journey that left him unable to walk for over a month. From the static fuzz of opener 'Same Sun, Same Moon', it is clear that Catalano and drummer Celeste "C.C." Spina are fully embracing the world they've threatened to break into on their earlier efforts.

As if lifting a gold-plated made-for-success blueprint, scribbling over it with spiritually-themed doodles and mixing it in a melting pot of Psychedelia, '...Moon' as an album is as akin to its predecessors as butter is to toast, yet at the same time wildly different, allowing them to branch out into realms yet to be sonically explored. First single 'OTL' trickles out electro-keys across plains of dusty drums, plateauing effortlessly across a desert of dual vocals, whilst 'Mt. Senorita' drags the cowbell out of retirement on one of the years suavest songs to date, bringing traditional Blues Rock to the 21st century in sophisticated yet stunning style.

Admittedly, 'Same Sun...', for all its experimental goodness, is not the spiritual swansong Little Hurricane were hoping for, instead they find themselves drowning in seas of seclusion, often stowing away their genius and replacing it with mud. In fact, the album's true tragedy is the sparse use of Spina's vocals, which often or not provide wave upon wave upon wave of depth to their harrowing song-writing, elevating their lyrical empathy to another level.

It's when the band let go of any pre-conceptions they're holding onto that 'Same Sun, Same Moon' truly shines as the pinnacle of their potential, particularly on the Riff 'n' Roll ballad 'Take It Slow' and the almost-Psychedelic spaced-out jam of 'Slingshot', which are both musically and lyrically exponentially explorative – "Time is like the deep blue sea, maybe just as salty, you can try and bet against me, I'll take all your money".
