Sisteria is a thunderous new psychedelic band from Norman, OK, spearheaded by folk-singer-turned-rock-goddess Katie Williams. With an alliance of accomplished players at her side, she spelunks into deep, primal consciousness to reclaim buried treasures of the self. From the outset, the band unchains itself from streaming algorithms and expectations, choosing instead to feed the desires of the art itself. Naturally, this fits the nature of psychedelic rock to a tee, but it also captures the album’s themes of embodied spirituality.

“The songs on “Dark Matter” aren’t just collections of psychedelia or magical buzzwords to evoke some grand, drug-fueled vision. Williams is spinning time-honored fantasy folk tales of cosmic defiance in the western wastelands, but recasting the archetypical calm, sneering, and enduringly male main character with an Earth-mother protagonist, confidently emotional and encouraging, but with the power and resolve of an encroaching thunderstorm.” – Brett Fieldcamp, OKC Free Press
