Axis: Sova – “Violent Yellow”

Just under a year after Brett Sova hit the world with his debut for God? Records, the Chicagoan returns, cleaned up sonically, but no less ready to dive into the dirty grit of motorik rock n’ roll and heavy psych. With Cave/Bitchin’ Bajas’ Cooper Crane at the decks, Sova has recorded a follow-up to Early Surf and its peeling back the cover on his grit soaked grind, wiping some of the debris from his lo-fi lockdown last year and letting the fuzz and fry bubble over with a crispness that suits him. The first taste of Motor Earth is a psych-splattered groover that’s one part kin to the Krautrock dirge of those other motorik menaces from ’16, The Writhing Squares, and one part ozone caked psych fry that’s burning down the button down lock step Krautrock altogether. Its a good first impression for the record and sounding like Axis: Sova is still one to watch.
