This is possibly one of the best psych rock band names going; breathe it in like fresh, weed-anointed air. Acknowledging the conflict at the heart of their favourite genre -- that bands of their ilk make the blank dot of space sound like a highway of chaos -- Irish band Wild Rocket embrace the meandering, dislocating hallmarks of psychedelia while creating something nonetheless quite exhilarating. Good on them.
Yer in for heaviness, pals: a thick outer coating of fuzz decorates this record, like growing mould nobody can be bothered to deal with. It smells. The atmosphere is pretty much derived from it, with the basic rhythms and mantra chants coming obscured underneath their good friend squalor. All they need, then, is some good riffs, and they join the swirl in numbers, with the excited and quickly expanding licks of “Infinite Reconnaissance Imager” unwinding gleefully into our ears.
You can’t hear many of the details, but that’s okay: a snatch of sound effects here, a whiff of a storytellin’ lyric, and it’s back into the distant lo-fi muck. It helps that the band can convey tone amidst all this, with the dynamic shfits between doomy and solo-wahing on “Into the Black Hole” proving them a versatile bunch of psychlords. Shine on in filth.
