San Francisco psychedelic rockers The Spiral Electric released their self-titled LP in March, produced by Steve Kille (Dead Meadow) and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Ian Brown, The Mars Volta), it is a psych-rock powerhouse.
The Spiral Electric’s sound is built upon a number of key ingredients; a brutal rhythm section, soaring melodies, raucous face-melting guitar, potent danceable grooves and a heavy dose of west coast psychedelia – and latest single ‘Swamp Type Thing’ is of a similar vein. It delivers a dark, ominous and heavy affair powered by a brutal rhythm section injecting a potent groove to the doom-laden squall of meaty riffs, screeching guitars and hazy psychedelic swirl to furnish a rampaging wall of psychedelic sound. A phenomenon in its own right, ‘Swamp Type Thing’ is dark and ominous beast, one of bludgeoning brute force than of subtlety but one of gargantuan proportions.
