RIYL: deep earth fuzz, spectral shoegaze, thunder riffs
Label: Little Cloud Records / The Acid Test Records
For well over a decade now, Austin thundergods J. Barreto and Alex Cordova have been evolving their psychedelic trip as Ancient River, wading further out into experimental waters with each new album. Released towards the end of 2019, After the Dawn is undoubtedly their heaviest trip yet, 8 tracks of auriculotherapy hellbent on welting your stubborn frontal cortexes into submission. Written on the road during their previous tour, the album feels less like a collection of individual tracks and more like a long journey, swelling and swerving along rising tides and lonely highways. Hop in, man. There’s room for one more.
