Album stream: Jeffertitti’s Nile, ‘The Electric Hour’

Who needs hallucinogens when you’ve got Jeffertitti’s Nile? The band — the cosmic conveyances of singer-guitarist Jeff Ramuno — this week releases its second full-length, “The Electric Hour.” Ramuno, who plays bass for Josh Tillman in Father John Misty, calls his music “transcendental space-punk doo-wop,” which uses a lot of words and hyphens where “psychedelia” would have done nicely, especially for an album that abides the mind-bending, boundary-pushing traditions of psych-rock. “The Electric Hour” was made between three studios: Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros’ room in Ojai; Jazz Cats studio in Long Beach (run by Crystal Antlers’ Jonny Bell); and Seahorse Sound in downtown L.A. Tillman plays drums on the album, and a lot of other luminaries from the L.A. scene contribute as well. Intense without being linear, exploratory without being indulgent, “The Electric Hour” is Ramuno’s finest hour
