Existing on the dreamier end of the psychedelic spectrum, Chilean duo the Holydrug Couple pull listeners into a trippy world of their own making on Noctuary. Recorded at the band's home studio, the album exudes a sense of hominess and comfort, making the sonic journey contained within more of a relaxing mediation than a mind-expanding explosion.
