A little recycling amidst newly forged gems can always be counted on in the continual unfurling of music from all corners of the world. That's exactly what San Francisco's duo of Potion continues to do so happily and infectiously, beautifully building upon their previous 2 releases on Blue Orange Records in their third release 'Band Of Outsiders.'

Contrary to that title, Potion, which consists of Annie Maley (vocals, programming, keys, percussion) and Michel Diaz de Bedoya (backing vocals, guitars, bass, keys, programming, percussion), are clear insiders within the burgeoning scene of San Francisco. Bringing their fresh tonic revelations that combine both the confections of the breezy, summer of love days and the unashamedly electronic pop toppings from the early -to-mid 80's, Potion's 9-scoop sonic sundae both refreshes like a sunny day at your favorite amusement park.

Replete with numerous hints of mixings of such flavorings from classic B-52's, Dire Straits, Velvet Underground days amongst others, 'Band Of Outsiders' shines in its own concoction of love potion number 9. Opening with the steady, floating, fuzz-filled "25th Century," Potion briskly set the pace for the consumption of their sundae as the looping, octave-raising keys coat alongside Annie's soothing vocals, duly giving some whipped cream and other delights to this first scoop as the following jaunting "Under Sedation" covers the kaleidoscope of emotions felt within a liberating road trip with the sun out, top down and the rushing wind breathing life into you. The hypnotic organic French lull of "Samba Spatiale" provides a thoroughly relaxing 4th scoop breather into the racing fuzz-swirl title track. The pure elation of "Watching the World Passing By" makes you swear you're at an old-time ice cream parlor birthday party as "Kissing The Chameleon" brings on the food coma certain to follow such a satisfying feed. "Rappacini's Garden" gives some needed edge to it all as the swaying "Drifting again" dreamily closes out this 37-minute affair that basks in its resounding, refreshing qualities. Whipped cream's sonic brother found.
