Spaghetti Western opener "Side Saddle Strut" sets the scene for Sheverb's debut as Betty Benedeadly, Xina Ocasio, and Fern Rojas set off across a psychedelic desert. The Austin trio's instrumental warps and riffs run variations on a theme, most interesting in the heavier shudder of "Thunder Lizard" and slow, heated whips of "Western Leone." There comes a point when riding the trail wears thin against a repetitive musical landscape. Sheverb's soundtrack wants for a narrative.
