Wailing psych rockers Blown Out have long been offering you the audio equivalent of what it's like to be inside the belly of a giant space worm. If you've heard 'em before, you know what to expect on New Cruiser: distantly cruising guitar solos being reigned in by a dutiful, ever-still rhythm section. Controlled chaos at its best. And most sprawling.

All this time reviewing psychedelic music and I’ve never once been to space. Fuck you, Norman Records, and fuck the Astrophysics Scholarship you promised me. I literally reviewed a Blown Out record last week and no one asked me if I could just pop to Saturn to fact-check it. Pricks. ‘New Cruiser’ is their new one, whatever, send me to Mars or write your own fucking review. It’s got tight drumming and absolutely out-of-this-world guitar solos, not that I’d know, because no one’s ever taken me off this world. It’s sprawling, I guess, what am I an astronaut? No.
I’ve got a Blu-ray of The Force Awakens in my bag so I can tell you that this record doesn’t sound too spacey; it’s got that grounded garage feel that Blown Out always sorta come back to as a distorted and exhausted heap. It’s the solos, those caterwauling solos, that feel all spaced up, with their remote engineering and wahed-up tone. What do you want from me? I’ve never even been to the moon. The moon isn’t even that far away. I hate it here there’s too much oxygen goodbye.
