With the release of Pagan Fruit now less than a week away, Salt Lake City psychedelic riff-wranglers, DWELLERS, in cooperation with Metal Insider, present ‘Spirit Of The Staircase‘.
Featuring former members of Iota and SubRosa, the self-proclaimed “gut rock” trio will release Pagan Fruit next Tuesday via Small Stone Recordings. Recorded and engineered by Andy Patterson (SubRosa, Catholic Girls) at The Boars Nest in Salt Lake City, Utah, mixed by Eric Hoegemeyer (Luder) at Tree Laboratory in Brooklyn, New York and mastered by Chris Goosman (Sasquatch, Five Horse Johnson, Lo-Pan) at Baseline Audio Labs in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the absorbing long player delivers nine tracks of solid, occasionally doom-laden psych rock.
Pagan Fruit follows in the still-echoing sonic shockwaves of DWELLERS’ critically-lauded 2012 debut, Good Morning Harakiri, which saw the newly-assembled trio of vocalist/guitarist Joey Toscano, bassist Dave Jones, and drummer Zach Hatsis pooling together their impressive prior musical credentials with staggeringly powerful and memorable results.
Fear not the ‘Spirit Of The Staircase‘ now streaming at THIS LOCATION.
And if you missed it, sample ‘Son Of Raven‘ currently playing at The Obelisk HERE.
An album that both exceeds the lysergic power chord trip initiated on that first album, and expands the band’s collectively creative horizons into realms heretofore unexplored, here DWELLERS travels far beyond the multifaceted influences, both subliminal and overt, picked up by discerning listeners on Good Morning Harakiri — influences ranging from Hawkwind to Soundgarden, Monster Magnet to Captain Beyond, Sons Of Otis to the Screaming Trees. The songs/seeds found on Pagan Fruit reveal novel, dynamically varied musical touchstones as far reaching as vintage Neil Young & Crazy Horse and Goat’s Head Soup-period Stones.
Pagan Fruit will be available for consumption via Small Stone Recordings May 6th, 2014. Pre-orders are available at THIS LOCATION.
