LABEL HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS
OUT June 12th, 2020 (May 29th digital)
OUR RATING 81/100
NY's heavy psych blues band GEEZER are ready to unleash a new album entitled GROOVY, available on June 12th and 15 days before digitally.
An interesting album where psych atmospheres are well mixed with bluesy touch of the band, all enhanced by strong rockin’ riffing and sharp-edged songwriting.
Based in Kingston, NY, GEEZER was formed in 2012 and have made a bluesy spirit a staple of their approach, and especially with 2014's 'Gage' and their 2016 self-titled leading into 'Psychoriffadelia', they expanded this idea to a wider vision.
They have shared stages with High on Fire, Acid King, Nebula, Earthless, Ufomammut and many more. After spending the better part of the last three years touring, writing, with a lineup which consists of guitarist/vocalist Pat Harrington, bassist Richie Touseull and drummer Steve Markota, this power trio now return with this new platter.
A long jam where we can find a more psych environment (DIG, ATLAS ELECTRA), more groove in the title track or a bluesy touch in AWAKE, our fav song; always interesting solos, both dirty and inspired.
The last ace, with over 9 mins lenght, is BLACK OWL, between doom and psych, with long and smart solo parts..a song full of high quality.
NO DOUBT, AN ALBUM TO SUGGEST!
