With an air of rock star superiority, Simone Schmidt did some swaggering behind her sunglasses and guitar, as the Highest Order celebrated their recent LP, If it's Real by raining psych vibes down upon Kazoo! Like the core of the band did with country music during their time together in One Hundred Dollars, the Highest Order is on an exploration of stoner rock and the study shows. They're absorbing conventions to get to a place of their own and, pushed by the thoughtfulness of Schmidt and guitarist Paul Mortimer, nothing short of a bad acid trip will stop them.
