If you ever wanted to know what Black Sabbath would sound like as a Latino-influenced metal band, now’s your chance. Brownout do a great job re-interpreting the masters.
There’s an awful lot of good neo-psychedelic rock music floating about online these days. Today’s discovery is Dead Meadow, a band who have roots in Washington, D.C.
While working at Aron’s Records during the 1990s, I came across this disc by Ejwuusl Wessahqqan (a name you have to say stoned, I guess) and did a bit of research by asking some of my clients about the band. They considered it a true Krautrock gem, and I couldn’t agree more.
Never, ever allow anyone to tell you that there is no good music being made today. Ever!
Twilight Fields is a band out of Northern Canada, but you wouldn’t know it judging by the influences they’ve sponged up into their body of work. One can easily hear touches of Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, the acid folk of The Incredible String Band, and more modern psychedelic fare from groups like Spacemen 3 and Spectrum.
The crisp recording adds to the pleasure of hearing this recording on a great set of headphones. A highly recommended release.
I can find no information on Groupe Naissance except for the fact that they were a Christian psychedelic folk group out of France. Charming stuff.
Thanks to my dear friend Betül Etik, who is responsible for finding this piece.
