Solar Secrets

Here is garage-glam heaven on a platter: Tony Visconti, who produced hot glitter for David Bowie and T. Rex 40-plus years ago, doing it again with the fine trio Capsula, from Bilbao, Spain. Visconti sets Capsula's dynamic compression of the Who, the Cramps and Sonic Youth in a high tide of psychedelia (long echo, watery tremolo, massed spires of treble guitar) that makes "Riverside of Love" and "Trails of Senselessness" sound like a fresh afterburn of the '67 Pretty Things and an acid-charged X. "You gotta be free," guitarist Martin Guevara and bassist Coni Duchess, Capsula's founding couple, sing in "Blind." They're already flying.
