Atmospheric Streams
With a new sound clearly apparent following lineup changes and an evolving songwriting approach, Atmospheric Streams is the latest iteration of Britt Thomas and her group (formerly Britt Thomas and the Breaker Boys). Combining dream-inspired lyrics, a new appreciation for technical chord and rhythmic choices, and a collaborative group ethos, the new album Looking Sideways is a romp through psychedelia, rock and world music-inspired compositions. Backed up by drummer Danny Albi, guitarist Todd Faustnacht, keyboardist Jeff Gregorio, and bassist Aaron Jollay, Atmospheric Streams crafts mystery and elation into their songs with a nod to Echoes-era Pink Floyd, early Fairport Convention, and the Velvet Underground’s Loaded. Experimentation and technicality are focus points on the new album, and you can hear a certain Krautrock influence on tunes like “Walls” and “Looking Sideways” ‒ inspired in part by Britt’s birthplace of Frankfurt, Germany, where she spent portions of her childhood. The vocal harmonies on songs like “Edge of a Dream,” and, “Thought Sound Vibration,” allude to the styles of Grace Slick and Jefferson Airplane, Neko Case, and Fairport Convention.
