Beachcombing For Groggy Priestbirds
Heard this little pearler the other week, and it took a little while to wrestle the attention away from some of the other heavy hitters of the past few weeks, but this long weekend has given me time to reacquaint myself (and you!). The album - Beachcomber. The band - Priestbird, a New York trio who have one member moonlighting alongside Devendra Banhart and the Grogs, so you can probably guess at the freak psych chants that are going on at the core of their sound. its fairly dark, heavy, and altogether rifftastic. I really need the biggest joint known to man though - I think the album would go down a treat that way. That said, its solid in its own right, and if you like the track below you can pick up Beachcomber over here for free - sweet!
