Michael Henaghan A quartet from Portland, Oregon, these crazy diamonds concoct kaledioscopic reveries that updates Barrett-era Floyd ('Black Maven') and brings to mind The Doors on occasion. There's Indian-like myticism in tracks like the reverb glaze of 'Umbra of Mind', the soporific, droning title track and especially 'Temple Song', which is a glorious trance-inducing mantra. The lead guitar is a particular highlight too, while organ-imbued keys add much depth Favorite track: Temple Song.

genesisjames Very nice first steps into the music world for this band. You can see the formation of their sound (which gets even better on The Moon EP), and there's a nice variety with the song structures and instrumentation. Definitely check out their other EP that I mentioned earlier, as well! Favorite track: Black Maven.

Close your eyes, in the dark or otherwise The significance, see the faint lights dance Behind your eyelids, the darkness never as vivid Brighter and brighter, see the deepest of shadows In the deepest of shadows Senses all swallowed Our bodies so hollow Open your eyes, where there's no light The deceptive walls are bound to melt and fall The force of stream like thoughts in your dreams Let it sink in, the pouring black ink In the deepest of shadows Senses all swallowed Our bodies so hollow The deepest of shadows will take you in The deepest of shadows will make you see The deepest of shadows, the deepest of your mind
The Sun 06:37
Searing so high In the morning sky The Sun has risen East clouds ignite Of the glaring light The Sun burns the horizon To crimson You can sense it bright Behind the shades of night Even the Sun has no reason to be
Black Maven 05:07
Nobody can see it, only through my eyes Nobody can feel it, or touch it It's the black maven talking to me all the time 24/7 of pantomime, it's eating me alive Something divine is in my mind I got a hole in my head and it won't leave me alone I got mine and you got your own Somewhere inside your head, it sees what you see Manipulating you night and day Something divine is in your mind too You got a hole in your head and it won't leave you alone I got mine and you got your own I got a hole in my head and it won't leave me alone I got mine and you got your own Get out of my head, so I could be free Or just kill me instead, I hope I could be free
Uzu 01:18
Temple Song 06:37
