But what Catacombz really excel at is infusing their Oneida/Cave/Trans Am inspired jams with some serious energy; quick paced and well played sonic excursions with a hefty dose of dopamine dripping in their wake gives Catacombz music an uncanny happiness that can't be faked. You can tell these fellas truly enjoy each others company when it comes time to lift off into the cosmos. Here's hoping this cassette gets the vinyl treatment in the near future. Comes with download of entire album.
Recommended." - Permanent Records "milwaukee's CATACOMBZ are back with yet another stellar WAY OUT THERE PSYCHEDELIC RIDE in the form of MOTHER TONGUE 2, available as a cassette / mp3 download......... those who picked up last years self titled affair know what you're in store for, but all the rest of you are gonna love this wild krautrock influenced drugged up spaced out rock n roll journey.... on MOTHER TOUNGE 2, CATACOMBZ manage to bend their HAWKWIND / early UFO space rock impulses into a more effects laden TANGERINE DREAM / pre-ambient ENO / CAN mind melting groovy avant rock jams..... at times heavy and explosive and at others proggy and tribal, these tracks race you through the outer edges of the universe and the normal restrictive musical genres........ imagine if NICE stumbled upon fusion era MILES DAVIS smoking a joint with NEU or SOFT MACHINE in a alleyway......
that is not to say that a strong psych/garage debt to the 13th FLOOR ELEVATORS isn't running through this whole tape too........ it's not often that one group can mash psych, krautrock, prog, fusion and rock n roll impulses into one EPIC TRIPPY SONIC EXPERIMENT...... this is not psych rock for the hippie kids, this is full on AVANT DAMAGED DRONED OUT PSYCH ROCK WITH A MESMERIZING SPACE FUNK BEAT........ fans of any of the aforementioned bands as well as CAMERA, CAVE, PLASTIC CRIMEWAVE SOUND, ONEIDA, WOODEN SHJIPS, ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE, VERMA and/or TORTOISE will fucking NEED THIS TAPE......and it's not like we need many tapes these days....... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!" - tiny GROOVES blog Read more on Last.fm.
