The upcoming release from Axis: Sova has been on the speakers pretty regularly around here, and as a second single slips out from the fold, you’ll come to understand why. Doused in fuzz-lined squalls, and lacquered with a gloss that’s somewhere in the valley of garage n’ glam, the song pounds the skull with just the right balance of blistered bliss. The band’s Brett Sova sums it nicely, “Hardcore Maps” evolved into something like a carnival ride through a dark yet vaguely familiar alley, or one of those dreams where you’re being chased at night but can’t seem to move fast enough or see who’s after you before leaping from a bridge onto a moving train… Getting it to tape was deeply cathartic – as is being able to share with everyone, finally.”
The rest of Blinded By Oblivion tears through similar sonic wormholes, and I recommend getting it on your radar. The album, produced by Ty Segall arrives October 6th from God? Records, Ty’s imprint over at Drag City.
