ANCESTORS – ‘In Dreams and Time’
On In Dreams And Time, ANCESTORS fuse the primal aggression of their earlier work with the advanced dynamic sensibilities of the new, gazing into the infinite horizon to provide innovative, atmospheric thinking-man’s music. From the moment the album’s lead track “Whispers” comes on like a collapsing star, SoCal’s reigning kings of heavy psych unleash spacious yet pulverizing music that unveils layer upon layer of vintage tones, spectral atmospheres, skin-crawling ambience and swirling keyboard swell over a body of crushing, full-contact rock. ANCESTORS music-fan-friendly sound easily finds appeal with both indie rock and metal fans alike and has been called “the hard rock equivalent of returning to the womb”.
NAAM – ‘The Ballad of the Starchild’
There are very few bands in the known universe that can draw upon such varied influences as The Stooges, Hawkwind and Can, but Brooklyn’s NAAM certainly fits the bill. With their new EP The Ballad Of The Starchild, NAAM creates spacey, spacious, garage-bluesy kraut-psych with an epic scope and altered state intergalactic musings about time, space and the future. The Ballad Of The Starchild is a far-out journey where riffs fall from the sky and float off to planets yet undiscovered by science!
