This Portland, Oregon, rock trio has been soundtracking imaginary Jodorowsky movies for years. Their debut for Thrill Jockey mines several decades of out-sound and manages to find new, groovy crevices in those worn, spacey grooves. The trio occasionally serves as the backing band for Tom Greenwood’s Jackie O Motherfucker, and you can hear why in the 10 1/2-minute “Reflections in a Mirage.” But though it may bear a passing sonic similarity, Tapestry’s take on droning experimentalism is so much better — it’s more accessible, and fun. — Mike McGonigal
