    "It’s been a hell of a year for Dire Wolves. The bi-coastal psych slayers have been on an endless tear for over a decade, but some of their best moments have coalesced in between 2018 and the present... The album is anchored heavily by the title track which takes up a good portion of the first side — pairing the band’s freeform wander with an expanded guitar interplay and ululating vocals... The song hangs on their own particular ether and soaks in the damp humors of the humid atmosphere. They roll out of it with something of a ritual or incantation before pumping the calm out of the room for a tangled mass of distortion and woven wicker lines set ablaze in the Copenhagen sun." (Raven Sings The Blues)

    "Flow & Heady shows us a heavier, fiercer side of the Dire Wolves Just Exactly Perfect Sisters Band’s sound, and it’s very much welcomed... The album balances Pink Fairies-like astral freak-outs and ritualistic mysticism amazingly well, complete with thundering fuzz guitars, wordless chanting vocalizations and chunky primal beats. This is the kind of music that you could dance around a raging fire to in a forest somewhere for hours... For a riff-heavy ride into space, crank Flow & Heady and you’ll soon find yourself ascending momentarily." (Record Crates United)

    "a free-form and super hallucinogenic hazy rhythm with a superb improvisational electric guitar solo at the front (simultaneously there’s tons of guitar feedback at the back), sporadic female voices and noises are all over the place, this is a long jam, live on stage, becoming mystical towards its end... now the sound has been sharper, more acidly drenched, more Cosmic! So, this album is guaranteed if you’re into some mind-blowing free form acid kosmiche folkish spiritualized improvised music! Transcendent and Heady indeed!" (Timemazine)

    "slithers in an a kozmic, krautrockin’ groove in the inimitable style and grace of fellow astral travelers and communal improvisational explorers like Amon Düül II, Guru Guru, Acid Mothers Temple, Can, Wallenstein, Magic Carpathians, et. al." (Its Psychedelic Baby)

Live at the Festival Of Endless Gratitude
Friday 13 September 2019
Copenhagen Denmark

LPs TOTALLY SOLD OUT from the labels.
Originally released April 17 2020 on Cardinal Fuzz (UK/EU) and Feeding Tube (US/NA), edition of 500.

"‘Flow & Heady’, the stunning new record from Dire Wolves Just Exactly Perfect Sisters Band, captures the group flying high at the height of their powers. Recorded live at the ‘Festival Of Endless Gratitude’ in Copenhagen, and released jointly on Cardinal Fuzz and Feeding Tube Records, this beautifully packaged LP documents some of the band’s 2019 European Tour. (*the included download code also features two additional live concerts!) For these dates, the Dire Wolves were joined by Nik Rayne of The Myrrors (guitar and clarinet) and Bell Lungs from Scotland (violin, voice and birds), each adding potent textures to the collective’s deep sonic glossolalia. The music Dire Wolves create is what they call 'Cosmic Free Rock' as via amplified instrumentation they summon a sound that pulls at psych, kosmiche, acid folk and spiritual jazz. Fans of Trad Gras Och Stenar and Amon Duul II will easily get lost in these zones, as droning violins, fuzzed acid guitars and wordless floating angelic vocals (that nod towards Rentate Knaup) are propelled by a rhythm section that knows exactly how to not overplay as they create the hypnotic essence from which Dire Wolves drift away. The raw overblown recording, à la White Heaven, becomes an instrument unto itself, placing you squarely in the moment with the group, amidst the swirling transcendent improvisation. This is a heavy record. This is Psychic Rock for the mind and body. Close your eyes, breathe deep and get lost in ‘Flow & Heady’." - Glen Burnout, March 10, 2020.
