"The ambitiously titled "You Can Ride A Beam Of Light Like A Musical Strum," the latest from workaholic dreamgazers Space Waves, offers chilled-out presence with an immediacy that's palpable when you're totally zoning out. That's most definitely a compliment. The band's coalescence has reached dizzying heights over the last year, having built their own studio, Mindwave, as well as minting their very own label, also called Mindwave. Whichever wave you want to apply to it is fine; "You Can Ride..." runs goopy, far-away guitars through the gauntlet of an eerie pre-dawn nightmare, scouring all the little essences of sonic mastery and head-down rock ambiance there may be available on earth to muster." RYAN J. PRADO - Portland Mercury
