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.  With the help of Romanus Records, the Wisconsin boys have two brand new red hot jams to melt your epidermis.  Sea of Red is ripe with organ drone, thick layers of guitar trickery and a lexicon of vintage cool.  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-length Chapel Perilous.  Should be explosive.  In the meantime, cop one (or all) of these amazing 7″ variants.  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.  Watch a video of the sand-filled variant HERE 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.  <3
