Heavy, decade spanning psyche rock from Brisbane's Zong, on an album which connects together historic fuzz and doom. Sabbath is an obvious reference point, but modern outfits like Eternal Tapestry and Astra also have kinship here. It's a vivid, totally tripped-out journey for horizon gazers everywhere.
7/10 Benn Staff review, 21 November 2017
Now, the first thing to mention about this record is that it can genuinely be played at 33 rpm or 45 rpm, depending on your mood. I'm too sure if this is an official feature, but honestly give it a try. If you're feeling more like you want to listen to something more grunge-y and a little chilled out listen to it at 33, but if you're feeling up for a brisk walk, listen at 45.
Again, this is another one of those records where, in my humble opinion, the album art could sell the record alone. I just have something about clutter and mess and lots of shapes - maybe it reflects my mindset? Anyway, it is worth noting that all the tracks are instrumental but contain a certain level of clever musicianship. The band can obviously connect with each other when writing the music, and are quite clearly on the same wavelength when they think up ideas...more than likely stoned.
Give in a listen if drone-y guitars and 'inter-dimensional' rock is your things. A good record. Mellow out man.
