Again It’s been a few days since my last post. You really wouldn’t believe how time spending while we fix our new home, fully otherwise at usual working , can be hard.
You will have noticed that Australia is playing strong around lately, now adds a fucking awesome collection of psych rock from Melbourne. This was recorded 2011/2012 and was released on 2013 and this record was something like love at first sight. Only took a few minutes to convince me and let me drift .
Grand Rapids pass through drone, psych, shoegaze but not to attribute any of the above only . Basically has a dark , post punk connotations , as if the sun has been cut in two and falls through the clouds above us . Like all happening at that moment where we look summer storm . The vocals are lost in the afterlife as thunders , tumbling guitars , bass, drums , tambourine, everything, all together drenching our head while we walk barefoot , blindfolded and hands asking a little more. Lovely…
