Manchester psychedelicists Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura return with their fourth album, the Philip K Dick-inspired (I presume) 'The Empire Never Ended', which features two lengthy tracks. On side A we've got a hazy sun-bleached psych jam, while on the B side something altogether noisier and more awkward happens - think Sonny Sharrock City Girls and you're somewhere close.

8/10 Staff review, 31 October 2014

Manchester psych-jammers Desmadrados Soldados de Ventura are back this week with a surprisingly limited (only 100 pressed) new LP of bonged up riff-a-thons with maximum guitar splatter. This team consist of a drummer and bassist holding down a groove and not one but four guitarists squealing and crunching and droning all over it in a never-ending spiral of psychedelic sound-vortex insanity.

They're displaying two very different sides to their personality on this LP. Side A treats us to one of their more accessible numbers, a head-nodding psych-kraut passage with hypnotically grooving rhythm section rumbling along with mid-paced determination while the guitars squiggle and squeal and meander in a loosely woven tapestry of tightly rolling grooves and unrestrained cosmic chaos. Over on the flip is a piece which begins in tumbledown style with rhythms all over the place and eventually settles into an off-kilter groove with scattershot drums, patiently rolling bass and plenty of chaotic guitar squealing of course, building to a monolithic barrage of sonic scree. Fans of blown-out psych rock indulgence will find plenty to like here.
