RIYL: Black Angels, Black Mountain, Sleepy Sun
Label: Romanus Records
It’s been almost 3 years since Wisconsin psych rock 4-piece Calliope have laid down their bluesy stoney riffs to tape, but the wait is over. Â With the help of Romanus Records, the Wisconsin boys have two brand new red hot jams to melt your epidermis. Â Sea of Red is ripe with organ drone, thick layers of guitar trickery and a lexicon of vintage cool. Â If you’re into The Black Angels, you need this one, but I can also see Calliope’s dueling guitar solos appealing to fans of Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats.
If you’re digging these tracks as much as I am, keep your eyes and ears peeled for Calliope’s upcoming full-lengthÂ Chapel Perilous. Â Should be explosive. Â In the meantime, cop one (or all) of these amazing 7″ variants. Â The random colored copies are a cool $8, the splatters, limited to 100, are $9, the gorgeous one-off colorways are $20 and the delicious sand-filled 7″s, limited to 45, are $45. Â Watch a video of the sand-filled variant HEREÂ and check out the tracks and colorways below.
These rekkids officially go on sale on Saturday, March 18, at 3:00 PM EST, but you lovely Sly readers get a crack at them early. Â <3
