About this item

“Essential listening for anyone who wants to hear why the psychedelic lineage of the past 50 years is fresh and alive” - The Quietus

Tucker’s boundless and singular vision is on full display in his most immersive and intoxicating music yet. Minimalist motifs are sculpted into deep drone constructions, weaving dense layers of maximalist sound to powerful disorienting effect. The songs occupy a unique territory somewhere between paranormal electronics and cosmosseeking psychedelia, standing as some of Tucker’s heaviest and most hallucinogenic work to date.

Alexander Tucker is a member of Grumbling Fur, his duo with Daniel O’Sullivan (This Is Not This Heat).

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: I remember seeing Alexander Tucker play about 15 years ago on his own, with a wealth of guitar pedals and even then, he sounded like about 5 people. In this recent, more bombastic iteration you can, at the very least, double that. Huge walls of psychedelic sound and twisting lysergic melody lines and airy drones make for a thoroughly intoxicating and rewarding listen.
