Minds Through Space and Time

With names like producer Jack Endino and engineer Steve Fisk (both of Nirvana and Soundgarden fame) on the liner notes, you don't have to listen to know there's something especially "Seattle" about Minds Through Space and Time. But when you do, this Seatown power trio--comprised of Van Conner (Screaming Trees) on bass, his brother Patrick on guitar, and Matt Vandenberghe on drums--brings forth a psychedelic grunge sound like Alice in Chains meets Black Sabbath, loaded with gravel-washed guitar and dark, grimy vocals. With its eerie reverb and Axl-like vocals, tracks like "Tortured Times" recall a time when three piece bands rocked harder than modern groups four times their size.

Mark your calendar: Valis play the Sunset Tavern Saturday, November 24th.
