Beamed into the Pacific ether from a woolshed and a tumbledown house perched on the hills above Port Chalmers during a period of heightened solar flare and aurora activity, Cosmic Radio Station “delves into the angular, chiming, hypnotic drone-pop of the city’s early-’80s Flying Nun clan,” according to the Otago Daily Times, “in more psychedelic shades.” The Shifting Sands drip sun-dazed melody through a shifting haze of fuzzy, chiming guitars, shimmering strings, and vocal harmonies.
(Fishrider - FISH008) CD $15.00 (Out-of-stock)
Weightless, naturalistic psychedelia that updates angular, chiming, hypnotic drone-pop with injections of synthesizer and sitar, effectively turning The Flying Nun Sound on its head, alternating between the dreamy and the urgent. Michael McLeod (ex-The Alpha State) with guests aplenty: David Kilgour (The Clean), Robert Scott (The Clean, The Bats), Robbie Yeats (The Verlaines, The Dead C), Lesley Paris (Look Blue Go Purple), and Tony de Raad and Tom Bell (David Kilgour & the Heavy Eights).
