Lord Summerisle – Postum
Self released – 2014
Rock, Psych, Prog, Stoner, Metal
This Barcelonian (see what I did there, with that… Hohoho) trio released their first Demo under this name back in 2013 but two of the members were also responsible for the Llord output a little while before that. We are referring to Lord Summerisle who have now released their new effort called Postum. Not sure if the album title refers to the fact that this project has also been brought to the grave? And we sincerely hope it does not. For the three tracks on this release shimmer with progressive psychedelic stoner gold. Recorded live at their own studio Magma Grabaciones in Barcelona the music on Postum aims for the spacy psychedelic sound of the seventies but with infusing something much more laidback and groovy or metallic and almost mathematical. Yes, there are grand ideas at work here and it sometimes already sounds highly majestic. Just imagine hearing this live in some dark place with only the lava lamps and spotty colors moving fast or slow across the ceiling. It will make you fly!
