Weird Owl

Weird Owl releases 4th LP “Interstellar Skeletal” + tours Europe in September

Brooklyn psych rockers Weird Owl (who've been around long enough to earn the title of "pillar of the local psychedelic scene") recently released their fourth album “Interstellar Skeletal.” Throughout the 9 tracks and nearly 45 minutes of music, the band covers an extensive range of neo-psychedelia, post-rock and alternative/indie. Highlight track “God” pulls a number of these elements together in the best possible way. Initially establishing an electro chill groove, the track's pace moves along in ways reminiscent of Washed Out’s “Feel It All Around” (a track popularized as the theme song to Portlandia). A big, majestic guitar hook emerges, anchoring the track with an extra dose of memorability, while lyrics like “Can’t get any sleep - there’s noises and this heat” - quite relatable in this NYC summer - contribute to the song's lynchian haziness. After one more ambient plateau the track continues to build towards a crescendo of snare shots, cymbal crashes and guitar blasts, creating a mayhem effect of epic proportions. The band is now preparing for a mid-September European tour. - Dave Cromwell
