Artist: BLACK SUN ROOF
Title: Feral
Format: LP + CD
Label: VHF
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Feral marks the return of MATTHEW BOWERs SUNROOF! (in the guise of BLACK SUN ROOF), for their first recording in five years. Quiet since 2007s blistering Panzer Division Lou Reed, the group delivers a more introspective set here, reaching back to the fuzzy, spacey sounds of releases like the epic double-CD Bliss. Among the drifting sonic washes, theres the crude, Dead C-like riffing of "Lions + Peonies" and the lock-grooved tremolo of "Son of the Blue Wolf" (referencing previous triumphs like Cloudz).  Bower says: "I have a problem with the term psychedelia [and its] negative associations of a hippie falseness. Nevertheless, my arte is, I know, deeply psychedelic in a true sense, a kind of synaesthesisia, a scrambling, an overload that seeks Samadhi in its primal gush, that will reconnect one with the all, or rather, a black psychedelia, substituting the elective current, for all...." In addition to the all-new tracks on the LP, the package also includes a bonus CD featuring a Bower-curated overview of his work. Many of the tracks on the 75-min Zebra Blood CD are from scarce or out-of-print recordings, including "Austrian Shade" from an impossible-to-find TOTAL seven-inch. Also included is the epic and exclusive new track "Spirit Animal Danzig."  Includes a bonus CD with scarce and out-of-print material from various Bower projects, plus one new track." -VHF.
