From Little Cloud Records:
NYC psych rock veteransÂ Weird Owl are set to releaseÂ Wet Telepathy, their seventh studio album, on September 20, 2019 on Little Cloud Records. Taking off from the psychedelic yet concise songwriting established on 2017â€™sÂ Bubblegum Brainwaves, this new album showcases the unpredictable and idiosyncratic nature of the bandâ€™s musical output. Songs about phantoms, psychic demons, bad trips and time travel all find a home in the off-kilter and slightly wobbly sci-fi universe created by Weird Owl.Â Wet TelepathyÂ marks the fourth consecutive record on which the band has partnered with Jeffrey Berner (Psychic TV) in the role of engineer, mixer and producer. Together they have achieved a vision that is totally unlike any other band in the contemporary psych rock scene.
Since releasing their debut album in 2007, Weird Owl have firmly cemented their place in the international psychedelic underground. Championed by none other than legendary Brian Jonestown Massacre frontman Anton Newcombe (who released two of the bandâ€™s albums on his personal label), Weird Owlâ€™s music has been called â€śmelodic, pleasant, head numbingâ€ť (All Music), â€śemotionally engaging and frequently movingâ€ť (Onion AV Club) and â€śexhilarating stuff, conjuring up images of some vast, cosmic desertâ€ť (Tiny Mix Tapes).
One of the bandâ€™s tunes, â€śWhite Hidden Fireâ€ť, has been viewed on YouTube over 2.6 million times at the time of writing.
Weird Owl have performed at such renowned festivals as Austin Psych Fest, Eindhoven Psych Fest (Netherlands) and The Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia (UK).
