Buried Feather

 

“Mind of the Swarm”

 

Cobra Snake Necktie Records / Kozmik Artifactz (LP + CD)

 

Psych rockers in continuo mutamento di immagini, colori, suoni. Dalla “Città Giardino”, Melbourne, le frequenze rimbalzano in un’odissea nevrotica di sabbia, vecchi garage rivisitati da infusi narcotici densi e filanti.

Buried Feather esplodono stentorei in questo secondo album registrato da Paul Maybury (King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard) e mixato da Nick Franklin (The Grates, Deep Sea Arcade). Dopo l’aspra, docile magia dell’esordio, nel 2013, realizzano uno spasmo colmo di onirismo lisergico coagulato in isteria ritmica, capace di sovrapporre follie tecnologiche e tematiche meditative. Vapori urticanti esplorano monolitici riverberi other-worldly, scomponendo le ondate fuzz. Essenzialità pesanti aspirano vortici gassosi tra ronzii abrasi e droni instabili. Ibrido eterogeneo creato da Velvet Fogg, Moon Duo, Dead Meadow, dosaggi dissonanti graffiati ai Bad Seeds.

Sensibili espansioni, somiglianti a turbini estatici, si muovono in brani itineranti nei bush australiani come ‘Mind of the Swarm’, ‘Dust’ e ‘Endless C’, un motorik dove sbuffa polvere di silicone riflessa dal sole. La linea psichedelica scorre in ‘I Would Miss You’, una depressione sfocata dal disegno di organo e chitarre, un diluvio ripetuto da ‘The Stranger’ in cui le rarefatte reiterazioni si moltiplicano nel garage-artefact di ‘Sunshine’. Steve McLennan, compositore, vocalist, chitarra-synth, modella con ossessiva efficacia le filastrocche snaturate dall’heavy-psych di ‘Regular Creep’, mentre il sogno ritorna in mood sintetico con ‘Screen Dreamer’. Visionarietà nel paradisiaco rumore attraversa Well Wishes’, che cresce d’intensità quasi teutonica, grazie ad una spirale elettro-propagata.

“Mind Of The Swarm” apre le porte agli esploratori della dilatazione concettuale sino ad esprimere un magnetismo naturale, perfezionato in una terra feconda e sempre aperta a nuove alterazioni sonore.

    “Mind of the Swarm”
    Cobra Snake Necktie Records/Kozmik Artifactz (LP + CD)

    Psych rockers in flux of images, colors, sounds. The frequencies spread in a neurotic odyssey of sand, old garages revisited by thick and stringy narcotic infusions from the Garden City, Melbourne.

    Buried Feather explodes stentorian in this second album recorded by Paul Maybury (King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard) and mixed by Nick Franklin (The Grates, Deep Sea Arcade). After the harsh floating magic debut in 2013 they achieve a spasm filled with lysergic oneirism coagulated in rhythmic hysteria able to overlay technological insanities and meditative themes.

    Irritating fogs explore monolithics other-worldly reverbs deconstructing the fuzz waves. Heavies essentialities suck gassy whirls between abraded buzzing and unstable drones. Heterogeneous hybrid created by Velvet Fogg, Moon Duo, Dead Meadow, dissonant strenghts scratched from the Bad Seeds.

    Sensitive expansions, similar to ecstatic whirlwinds, are moving in itinerant tracks in the Australian bush like ‘Mind Of The Swarm’, ‘Dust’ and ‘Endless C’, a motorik where blows silicone dust reflected by the sun. The psychedelic line flows in ‘I Would Miss You’, a depression blurred from a pattern of keyboards and guitars, a deluge repeated by ‘The Stranger’ where the rarefied reiterations are increased in the garage-artefact of ‘Sunshine’. Steve McLennan, composer, vocalist, guitar synth, creates with obsessive efficency distorted nursery rhymes from the heavy-psych of ‘Regular Creep’, while the dream returns in synthetic mood with ‘Screen Dreamer’. Visionary dimensions in the heavenly noise go through ‘Well Wishes’, that grows of intensity nearly kosmische, thanks to an electro-propagated spiral.

    “Mind Of The Swarm” opens the doors to the explorers of the conceptual expansion up to express a natural magnetism, refined in a fertile land and always open to new auditory alterations.
