Every now and then I think we need a certain album or sound we can put into our record players/MP3s and play it just so we can forget things for a little while. Whether that involves becoming enveloped in certain lyrics or certain songs or a certain psychedelic sound that is hugely immersive and thick with hazy, crazy riffs and vocal delivery.
Cricketbows, a band hailing from Dayton, Ohio is a band that fits the hazy crazy psychedelic sound. They are busy preparing their third album, but you can download and listen to their latest album Mycocosmic Transmission for free on their Bandcamp page.
It’s fantastic. Full of guitar riffs that sound far away yet keep my attention directly on them, vocals that fit in extremely well with the dimension-bendingly futuristic sound. It’s just an impressive album that allows you to let your body go limp and sway with the music, as it will capture you in its creativity. I can’t wait to hear more from Cricketbows and Mycocosmic Transmission is great.
