Newer Seattle group Kingdom of the Holy Sun just dropped their Surya's Smile II album, which reins in their more sprawling tendencies for a tighter, slightly sunnier take on psychedelia while still maintaining a serpentine grandeur. And, yes, vocalist Guido Anselmi sounds like Jim Morrison; get over (or under) it.

Track Name: Yama
Her god is dead
His tears will be shed
His deeds sacred red
As we look ahead
His glory still unread
His gospel we have spread

Her god is dead
The wives he wed
Our faith we’ve shed
Written in red
New gods in her head
Her god is

Dead
Dead

Mad men in her head
His shadow looms ahead
His bread we were fed
His body in our bed
Her gospel we have read
Her word we will spread

We will spread
We will spread
