this looks like a cat eating a bat, but I did hear the tune on 95 BFM Drive and I thought about cross species transfers, a sorta Kruatrock vibe, Rushan gas and so on, as I drove along in safe public transport
Favorite track: 10 Bells.
Stockholm’s Les Big Byrd are back with their new EP Roofied Angels due out on June 26 on limited edition 12” vinyl and with the A-side and title track released digitally in May. Roofied Angels is the first piece of new music from Les Big Byrd since 2018’s acclaimed Iran Iraq IKEA LP outside of the instrumental “Snö-Golem” 7” from last fall and the English language version of the band’s 2017 hit “Two Man Gang” which was released in May 2019. The 7 minute fuzz-blizzard “Roofied Angels” might just be the best thing the band’s put their name to yet, melding Motörhead and Shangri-La’s influences into their krautrock infused psychedelic rock, while bringing to mind the heavier side of the band’s 2014 debut LP They Worshipped Cats and was recorded during the sessions for the band’s upcoming third full-length.
supported by 24 fans who also own “Roofied Angels [EP]”
An absolute masterpiece, the supposed final installment of what has been a stellar run of brilliant psychedelia from these Japanese kings.
The melodies alone are worth the price of admission. Charlie Moonbeam
