BAND Tia Carrera
ALBUM TRIED AND TRUE
LABEL Small Stone Records
OUT June 12th, 2020
OUR RATING 75/100
Texas-based heavy psych/blues band TIA CARRERA was out yesterday with their long-awaited 'Tried And True' out on Small Stone Records.
Jason Morales and drummer Erik Conn are pushing two decades under the TIA CARRERA banner. Thus, latest endeavor, Tried And True, has more than earned its name. Ahead of 2019's two-song Visitors/Early Purple LP, the founding duo recruited bassist Austin legend Curt Christenson
TIRED AND TRUE is a sonic journey, a long jam culled from their latest studio work and across a thirty-seven-minute LP (the compact disc runs seventy-one minutes with the included "Visitors" and "Early Purple" bonus tracks) the three-piece once again scorches their way into the hearts of the lysergic converted.
A ton of heavy-psych improvisations, for fans of no frills jams, which seem played live.
To remark the brilliant 14 mins of the title track.
