The Beta Band

(Beta Band: Ewan Spencer)

A-

Heroes to Zeroes

Producer (group): Astralwerks

Moon-eyed stoners looking for a 21st-century Pink Floyd should seek out the Beta Band’s Heroes to Zeroes. On their third full-length, the shaggy Scots hone their sound – hippie-dippie vocals backed by expansive space rock – into a sonic fingerprint worth trademarking. Some ragged guitar rave-ups and sticky funk beats occasionally break through the languid haze, though Steve Mason’s butter-melting vocals will never harsh your mellow.
