THE PEOPLES TEMPLE have righteously returned with a sliver of their next wave, and with the anxiously awaited follow-up to their debut LP Sons of Stone, we have a band on our hands here with their heads clearly going in the right direction. The Lansing, Michigan snarlers have constructed their sophomore LP, More For The Masses, with a taste of what they’ve been working on since their last outing, and it’s got us seething with excitement to share it with the world. The new songs show a bold advance in the songwriting structure, with intricate arrangements, incredibly diverse new directions not far off from the pioneering material spurned forth from the iconic ‘60s band Love. We're talking flashes of primitive baroque pop and British 'Fading Yellow'-style songs, albeit not absent of their illustrious fuzz guitar flourishes we've all come to love and expect, laid on thick. More For The Masses is a perfect example of what Peoples Temple do best, a direct shot to the dome of perfect rock’n roll snarl, classic pop, head-expanding fuzz, those two-part vocal harmonies, and an ever-compelling riff that takes you over the edge and back within minutes. Peoples Temple have built on their unusual knack for crafting original pop music sounding like it’s been stripped out of the ashes of time, only to emerge with some of the most creatively exciting sounds coming out of the Midwest in years.
