“Lay your illusions down forevermore,” Guy Blakeslee urges on “No Needs.” The lyric evokes the sense of psychedelic wonder that he tries to conjure with The Entrance Band, even as the quaint phrasing also marks him as a man out of time. Blakeslee surrounds himself in a spin of flamenco guitars, castanets and flute, his droning vocals pulled away in a stormy updraft of whirling strings. Paz Lenchantin, presumably on a break from her new day job with The Pixies, keeps Blakeslee tethered to the ground and/or reality with her firmly roaming bass. When Lenchantin and Blakeslee plug in their axes for maximum impact, their bluesy, hard-rock riffs rise and resound like thunder over Derek James' drum collisions.
