2013's Persona Non Grata, the latest album from California psychedelia/garage-rock band Cosmonauts, doesn't have quite the same wild, fanged bite as 2012's If You Wanna Die Then I Wanna Die—with the killer tracks "Emerald Green" and "Motorcycle #1"—but what it does have plenty of is hazy, drugged-out hypnotism that's poisonously intoxicating and as heavy as swamp ooze. Created with lots of guitar feedback, droning vocals and heavy, thumping percussion, songs like the lurking "Wear Your Hair Like a Weapon" and the meandering "Vanilla" are slow-burning journeys into the weird: part joy ride through a post-apocalyptic landscape, part acid trip in the woods. Also performing are local psych-rockers Super 78, surf-punk/rock band Breakers and Beat Hotel. (Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly)
