So has been a couple of days without write , I know, but that not meaning I didn’t have anything worth posting, it´s that my week has been chock-full of work.
Well, I probably should have wrote about this on end last year , because it was actually released around Thanksgiving day, so i feel an incompetent for I didn’t notice right away and surely you’ve heard about these fellas.
Anyway, although seem pretty late to be posting since its initial release, fuck, because ” Main Obsession” has totally flooded my mind and probably will with your ears. It’s really pretty damn awesome..
As I said, this past November 19 French Psych Garage Rockers Wall of Death let dropped their debut album Main Obsession through Born Bad Records, easily one of the greatest monuments to France´s Psych quarry currently , although the consensus around internet shows that for critics went largely unnoticed. But it was re-released through The Reverberation Appreciation Society three days ago, from what I can tell they are providing us a new opportunity.
The Paris-based band formed by Gabriel Matringe , Brice Borredon and Adam Ghoubali that was an elusive entity to me , only has released one single and this colossal debut album in these only three years since their formation.
Currently are on a tour supporting The Black Angels, which began at this year’s Austin Psych Fest, and you know that I feel a certain kindred spirit with anyone who relates to this festival, and here there´s a good reason why it’s an incredibly damn catchy record. Every track bristles with shimmering psych tremolo , blasting washes of drums, and distant vocals and absolutely worth checking out. Hopefully there is more Wall Of Death to come…
