"Inner Outlaws"

With something reminiscent of Destroyer's uncanny ability to reveal hidden meanings in otherwise placid seeming events, there's more than meets the eye in Brooklynites Inner Outlaws' self-titled EP - the third they release in 2013. Like in the record's cover, everything appears well from the surface; The band's practically begging you to jump in... but watch out. There's an underlying sinister tone here in tracks like 'Bodies of Water' that might make you think twice before taking a dip yourself. And that's all the reason to listen to all 9 minutes of vaguely Pink Floydian (circa 1975) track 'Bodies of Water' below. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets) - The Deli

"Inner Outlaws - Inner Outlaws (2013)"

Inner Outlaws are a Brooklyn-based five-piece psychedelic rock outfit who are totally fresh on the scene. Well, actually... not quite, because this band features members from the excellent instrumental post-rock group Spaces, whose album Nothing Exists but Atoms and the Void is a fantastic cosmic journey which I highly recommend you listen.

Now, Inner Outlaws is a whole different affair than Spaces. Their debut EP has just two songs and only clocks in at about 15 minutes, yet it features many different movements and switches pace multiple times. Points of Fire opens with a futuristic progression of guitar notes which sound like they're about to explode into a soaring guitar solo, but nope!, the band shifts to an electro-rock inspired segment that kinda reminded me of Muse if they were less focused expensive effects and more focused on atmosphere and sonic details. The band doesn't linger on for too long, though, so the song gradually brings back the squealing guitars and becomes a really groovy, spacey bit of post-rock that eventually bleeds right into the second song. Bodies of Water starts off as a sweet folky tune with twangy guitars and melancholic lyrics, after which it moves onto a slightly darker atmosphere punctuated by acoustic guitar passages and droney bits. During the final part, the song goes back to the folk-inspired musings and everything ends on a cheerful and optimistic note.

Ultimately, Inner Outlaws are all about atmosphere and creating a feeling of wonder and excitement. The music constantly reshapes itself and brings forth many different elements, from post-rock to soul and indie rock, making for a rather eclectic mix of sounds which is certainly interesting enough to warrant multiple listens. Their EP drops tomorrow and you'll be able to find it on Bandcamp. It's a great start and I can't wait to see what these guys come up with in the future. - Tzeeeac

"Inner Outlaws: Inner Outlaws"

Today marks the release of the self-titled debut EP by Inner Outlaws. The Brooklyn psych rockers are made up of members from FZB favorite Spaces and folk collective The Woods. Though the EP is only two tracks and lasts a scant 15 minutes, the work stands as an epic debut record. Stylistically varied and musically complex, the two tracks are yet accessible, melodic and inviting. Not since Foxeygen's debut, has a band shown this level of originality and depth. That's not to compare the two, as Inner Outlaws have a heavier and more compelling sound. This is a must have. Stream and download Inner Outlaws at the link below. - Floorshime Zipper Boots

15 minutes of bliss and bathing in the ocean of melodic, proggy goodness - that’s what the self-titled debut EP by the NYC dreamgazers Inner Outlaws is. Two tracks change their shapes and colors like seen through a kaleidoscope, but without losing any of the momentum and songwriting brilliance. If the previous post was the prophecy of the inevitable, then may this post be a reminder of good times past and also a reminder that summer’s not totally over yet and we’ve still got some warm (if not hot) days ahead! Highly recommended. - Weed Temple
