BACK IN STOCK
L.A.’s lowest dungeon downers continue their narco drip into smoke-stained bleak psych, the latest saga of which is Too Down To Die, the band’s first full-length since March 2010’s Burners LP. The journey was a cryptic, crooked crawl. Side A consists of consistent live staple “Parallel Wanderer,” a sprawling kosmische bruiser that spills from astral dread to loner deathmarch before dissolving raggedly on a wasted plateau. The B features a trio of songs new and less so, from industrial headbangs (“Universal Migration”) to negative throbs (“Afterburners”). Out of step and out on the ledge. Recorded at Green Machines in East Los Angeles and cut at Dubplates in Berlin. Black vinyl LPs in gloss-finish jackets with blasted orb artwork plus a photocopied insert.
