One of our favorite local festivals; Aarhus Psych Fest has grabbed us a booking that we think you just have to check out when they play this Friday at wonderful RADAR: White Hills – one of the most fearsome and uplifting live acts on the Psych/Space Rock scene from the US right now. According to Aarhus Psych Fest’s main brain, Stine Kloster – they absolutely destroyed Austin Psych Fest (the original granddaddy of all Psych Fests) last summer when she travelled over to witness first-hand as research for the Aarhus chapter. Now they are on tour just as their new album Walks For Motorists is about to drop – and it’s shaping up to be a good ‘un.
Walks For Motorists was recorded with David Wrench (Caribou, Bear in Heaven, FKA Twigs, Owen Pallet) in Wrench’s studio that borders the Snowdonia National Forest in Wales. The band had 24-hour access to the studio, which allowed them to work whenever inspiration struck. Wrench’s expertise producing and mixing electronic music was an essential asset when perfecting the crisp tones heard throughout the record. This is the first album the band has recorded outside of New York City, and the vast, rolling Welsh landscape that surrounded the studio influenced the album’s uncluttered sound. Walks For Motorists is also White Hills’ most diverse album to date. Fuzzed-out rockers sit comfortably next to kraut-infused grooves.
Their live shows are said to be absolutely legendary and we’re giving you a chance for two lucky souls to get in for free. The local Eddisons Face Implosions (formerly known as Acid Twin) are warming up – so you really get two great loud trippy bands on one ticket! Here’s all you have to do to be in the completion:
