FINAL 6 COPIES / WAREHOUSE DISCOVERY / UNPLAYED BUT SIGNS OF HANDLING
L.A.’s downer erosion architects continue their 6-year-deep narco drip into psych-streaked bleak house, the latest saga of which is Too Down To Die, the band’s first full-length since March 2010’s Burners LP and the journey there-and-back was a cryptic and crooked crawl. All of side A consists of “Parallel Wanderer,” a kosmische bruiser and consistent live staple spilling from astral ambient dread into loner deathmarch before detonating into a wasted ghost-rock vacuum. The B features a suite of songs new and less so, from the 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 jackets with blasted orb artwork plus a photocopied insert.
