The Amazing are one of the best-named bands I’ve encountered in a while, mainly because they’re also one of the best. Judging by “Picture You,” the title track from the Swedish quintet’s third album, they play adventurous psychedelic prog-rock that shimmers gorgeously as it spreads out across the surface of the earth. (All apologies to frontman Christoffer Gunrup, who rejects “psychedelic” and “prog” as descriptors for his music. ) “Picture You” sounds like one of former Amazing tour-mates Tame Impala’s kaleidoscopic sprawls with a beautifully weary Jose González song haunting its vast expanses. Dungen guitarist Reine Fiske is in the lineup, and that band’s legacy is in the ether here too. I am not being facetious when I say this is something you absolutely need to hear, so hear it. Double LP with a MP3 Download. -Chris DeVille, sterogum. com
