The songs on this CD could easily be defined as drone rock as much as psychedelia, taking a conscious cue from the Velvet Underground (the band gets its name from the Velvets’ “Black Angel’s Death Song”). The sound is punctuated with sitar, organ and accents of tambourine, as well as an enigmatic “drone machine.” The songs “Science Killer” and “18 Years” both open with pulsing bass lines that burst open with reverb-saturated guitar and organ, reminiscent of the cavernous sound of Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures.
Blood pulses through this psychedelia. Pick up Directions to See a Ghost for a welcome transfusion.
