Eyes - A Candle In The Crown of The Dawn

Eyes are a now defunct psych/kraut/prog inspired group of weirdos who may or may not have a fucking octopus for a drummer. Seriously, some of the percussion on this record is absolutely insane. I don't want to short change the rest of the band either. Eyes had a real knack for creating beautiful, complex music with just the right amount of improv. My only gripe with this record is the vocals. They're rarely a focal point of any track, but they have a strange Bob Pollard in a tin can sound that threw me off at first. Slight reservations aside, I highly recommend checking Eyes out. You can grab the cassette from Field Hymns Records HERE.
