Futurecent by The Orange Revival

The Orange Revival make psychedelic, droning blues rock. Futurecent is a slab of acid-soaked fuzz, buzz and thump that recalls The Stooges and Brian Jonestown Massacre. To add more authenticity to their sound Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3 and Spectrum remixed the single Saturation which preceded the release of the album.

“Revival” is probably the right word, yes. With numbing psych that scrapes through the murky depths and then stagnates there like the Brian Jonestown Massacre having a long lunch, and a vocalist that sounds something like a snarking Blank Realm fan, the Orange Revival are making the heavy stuff -- the kind of psych that wears you down. Everything feels a li’l bit haphazard, so wear your hardhats and earbuds: the synths are sharp and piercing amidst short, abrupt melodies that repeat until they feel like concrete slabs. On ‘Futurecent’, the Revival are also as lethargic as Spacemen 3. A heady combo, is all this.

There’s a nice reverence for the old school on ‘Futurecent’ that makes it ever so slightly dynamic: “Lying In The Sand” bounces from its unwavering verse to a change-up melody that sounds hard-won, with occasional riffs littering the streets -- it’s as hard for this band to move things into place as a doom metal band, so the catharsis is felt doubly when they do. Cries of “good vibrations” are in vain: this is a sludgy psych slog at whatever pace, and that’s the way it should be -- the nimble riffs on “Speed” are ultimately subject to a steadfast drumbeat that never quite lets up. Get lost in this one: the structure is sturdy.
