RIYL: eclectic indie psych
Label: Mind Altar Records
Brooklyn indie psych four-piece Honduras will celebrate a limited edition 7″ single release this¬†Thursday, March 1st,¬†with brand new label Mind Altar Records.¬† Known for their energetic live performances, Honduras¬†combine the driving proto punk stylings of The Velvets and the¬†eclectic psych musings from new groups like King Tuff, Mac Demarco¬†and The Allah-Las to perfect their unique take on the genre.¬† There’s a little taste of everything in there.¬† Lead single Need the Sun surfs on a Born on the Bayou-style riff and coasts along a breezy rhythm section and some vintage organ tones.¬† Excited to hear more from these fellas!
The vinyl starts at $7 and will be available in three versions, with artwork and design by Mind Altar’s Ryan Irven.¬† Side A also has a locked groove, so the party can go on as long as you like.¬† Also, the test press edition, limited to a mere 5 copies, has an alternate¬†2-color screen printed sleeve.
Now, here’s where you’ll need to pay attention.¬† These are¬†dropping online on Thursday, March 1st, at Noon EST for label subscribers and 2 PM EST for the general public.¬† How do you become a subscriber, you ask?¬† Well, my inquisitive¬†friend, head over www.mindaltarrecords.com and smash the ‘Newsletter’ tab at the top.¬† Fill out that bad boy and boom…you’re in.¬† Check out the tasty vinyl colorways below and listen to the new track.
