I could think that it I might be able to post this on last weekend , but was a holiday here which at seem was an important day of recognition to… I don´t know what. On my country are changing the important days according to tourism so…I was on a break along with my family to then return it to my normal life surely full of distractions and time constraints to write , but full of sounds, too.
So, I have been listening to a ton of psychedelics stuff and again I’m fucking obsessed with these four psychedelic fellas from Glasgow with a penchant for trippy, long-form grooves that summon space spirit who we know as Cosmic Dead
They are by far one of my favorites band out on last year and continue to be out a seemingly endless supply of brain melting psych and drone acts, like their truck load of last year , when they released self-titled cassette, an eighty minutes plus mystery ride, deep into rich pulsating waves of drone, soaked guitar fireworks and vocal glimpses.
Well, they have returned this year with others slow-burning brain candles, subtle and unpredictables, full of tiny melodies which begin to swell up and multiply, creating something deep and intense.
You can soak in this for a while, only check out their work below and can get some
I would like to remind everyone – while it is impossible and pointless fight to illegal downloads, although my intentions could be good – that you could give few dollars/ pounds/ pennies to the artists and labels you like.
If you love Cosmic Dead please head to their bandcamp to do it, there , with just some pounds r you can get home almost all Cosmic Dead albums and give ’em some coins so they can keep making great music!
Of course for the lovers of physical products, this is the place you need to visit.
