RESIDUAL ECHOES - phoenician flu & ancient ocean CD, Holy Mountain




“Phoenician Flu And Ancient Ocean is another seething mishmash of psychedelia, Krautrock and free-noise — the perfect follow-up to last year’s highly regarded self-titled debut LP. A combination of self-recordings and studio numbers, Phoenician Flu and Ancient Ocean is full of absolutely staggering material. The endless riff-sanity of ‘Death Comes for the Archbishop’ is followed by billowing smoke, and a fuzzy pop number that shoots itself when the smell of smoke turns out to be a smoldering amp that has been on too long too loud. That piece of reverbed noise might’ve been all were it not for the depraved psychedelic dub and Monoshock tribute that follows. Odes to the acoustic guitar and former gods of the six-string close the album.”
