Florida - Icarus b/w Once Yr In It 7"
We received our copies of this one through the mail the other day, and I couldn't be more pleased. "Icarus" is an intense early-70s psych mindfuck with heavily reverbed In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida-esque monotone vocals. I momentarily played this track at 33⅓, encountered Satan, shat myself, and immediately turned it back to 45rpm. Great stuff. "Once Yr In It" is a dark acoustic track fitting for a midnight séance in a lantern-lit graveyard. Props to Gary War for production on this release. This is some incredibly genuine psych material, and one of the coolest things I've heard this year. Limited to 300, this 7" boasts a 3D cover with supporting 3D glasses and is already sold out through Shdwply, but can still be found through Norman Records, Juno Records, or possibly at your local shop.
