New Sulatron / Cardinal Fuzz doings for you tenacious psychlords to dig into: Arizona's Cobra Family Picnic have been hanging around with all the best and brightest and most stoned contemporary psych bands, and now they follow up their EP with a full-grown album. It's noisy and turgid and ever-so weird, going in for the long, hypnotic squalor of bands like Suicide and Les Rallizes Denudes. Garage messiness shrouded in a smoky fire.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 18 May 2017

Roll up, roll up, more psych rock. This time from Tucson Arizona, a city where I once spent a night in the sort of hotel where your feet get stuck to the floor. Their geography seems to have burned into their sound as this is a series of sun starched psych explorations. The opening ‘Draags’ burbles along with some nice wobbling organ for company whilst ‘Elysium’ reminds me of those times you are stuck at a festival in the middle of the day, the sun getting hotter whilst the guitarists solos get longer. They do this over a nicely building kraut jam though which provides a tight bedrock for their jamming. This is probably best exemplified on the 7 plus minutes of ‘Frost’ where the band sound more focussed and less stoned. Working themselves up into an utter frenzy for your enjoyment. 

These are fried psychedelic jams to get lost in. Probably best taken with copious amount of drugs but at present the only thing in my system is the tail end of a Nutragrain.
