RIYL: Spiritualized, Moon Duo, Pink Mountaintops

Label: Rehab Sound Recordings

Self-proclaimed as “doom pop from heaven” and dubbed as “gloriously out of step with the rest of Scottish music”, Edinburgh 6-piece Delta Mainline are doing their damnedest to build a bridge to the promised land.  A mix of cosmic country, dream pop, gospel psychedelia and electronic experimentation, Delta Mainline create a rich orchestral landscape ripe with all the life-affirming elements you love from acts like Spiritualized and Mercury Rev.

Bel Avenir marks their sophomore effort, a long-awaited follow-up to 2013’s Oh! Enlightened.  Invited to tour with everyone from Moon Duo to The Warlocks to The Telescopes, there’s a need for more UK-inspired psychedelic pop like this.  It’s the sound The Flaming Lips wanted as they wrote The Soft Bulletin, it’s the cloud that Anton Newcombe was always reaching for in the nineties, it’s about as close to the heavens as you can get without seeing the white light.  A must listen.

Only 250 copies are being offered on hot pink vinyl (although it appears to be more of a red color in the photos).  Check out the entire album below and grab a slab after the ‘buy’ link.
