I love that astral, swirling hypnotic sound of bands that create deafening psychedelic rock. You hear it in Wooden Shjips and Moon Duo, and now in LA band JJUUJJUU. This duo consists of Andrew Clinco (Incan Abraham) and Phil Pirrone (Moon Block Party), creating a monumental, energetic sound in “G 4 A G” off their new three-song EP, Ancient’s Future.
Featuring clashing cymbals, occasional tambourine, echoing vocals and the sonic drone of elongated guitar riffs, “Ancient’s Future” is, at nearly eight minutes, truly brilliant. Impose had this to say about the song:
“G 4 A G” burns slow and steady with a bit of a freak-power edge that spells mild darkness with drop-out, play-through, basement rumblings.
JJUUJJUU’s new EP dropped earlier this month on Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records. I just ordered my copy; the release is on white vinyl and is limited to a mere 300 copies.
Check out “G 4 A G”, which I assume may have something to do with the chords or notes featured in that prominent guitar riff, below. Then watch their video for “Ancient’s Future”, also below.
