RIYL: experimental spacey psych
Italian 6-piece space psych rocketeers Julie’s HaircutÂ have been an active rock entity since the late nineties, starting off with garageÂ soul roots and slowly morphing into more experimental soil.Â Â Up until now, the two songs on this new limited 12″ were only available as part of theÂ digital-onlyÂ 2013 album Ashram Equinox. Both these songs have in time become quite regular at the band’s live shows, so they’ve decided to give them a proper physical release.
If Mars had desert highways, Karlsrhue would be blaring out of our cosmonauts’Â land rovers.Â A spacey krautrock jam, the track churns with eery synths and brooding acoustic guitars under a gurgling psychedelic vocal.Â It’s the kind of musicÂ that soundtracks yourÂ dreams as your brain oozes DMT into your subconscious, familiar but just beyond your reach.Â B-side Fountain sounds like aÂ deep cut from a forgotten Pink Floyd album, pulsating with a vibraphone and warm cavernous harmonies.Â My only criticism is that the record is too short.Â I want more,Â Julie’s Haircut.Â MORE.
Listen to the two tracks and grab a copy of the 12″ on red vinyl after the ‘buy’ link.Â There are only 300 copies to go around!
