Phileas Fogg – “Predict All My Failures”

Phileas Fogg returns – following last year’s impressive “Will Never Be Played Again” – with another slice of psych-rock goodness. The elusive project touts a suave guitar presence with a bit of a spaghetti-western pull, with emotive vocals establishing a firm lead and eventually sporting a haunting reflective background layer. There’s a turn around 01:30 to a more contemplative, nocturnal tone with vocals bordering on spoken word, before concluding with a forceful array of frantic guitars and the repeating vocal hook. “Predict All My Failures” is another success for Phileas Fogg.
