Planets Around The Sun - Cosmic Job

Gritty electro space rock from Planets Around The Sun, with Cosmic Job, on Eiderdown Records. Propulsive psychedelic jams, swirls of noise, and get this, vocals. I can't remember the last time I heard vocals on a tape, and it's really refreshing. Four tracks that absolutely feel spontaneous and alive. Although I don't know it to be true, it feels like the whole thing is perhaps outtakes of longer improvised session that could have gone on for hours. Part of some bizarre and wonderful Hawkwind worship session. The lead track on the flip, Bump Tounges pretty much encapsulates the entireity of what makes this one special. Thick, nasty mid tempo riffs echoing all over the freakin' place. Sounds like a rocketship ride inside a blacklight.

Black shells, double sided j cards featuring (as with all the Eiderdown editions) the very unique art of Max Clotfelter printed in vibrant colors. Grab direct from Eiderdown.
