The impeccable run of acts from Curation Records continues. This time the label taps Eric Silverman for a new album of West Coast psychedelics and Canyon cooldowns. The first single embraces the headier side of Silverman’s approach, starting out like a Cosmic American strummer before the keys drop in and open up a bit of mid-trip anxiety. Silverman starts out with a jazzed clarity to the song. Open strums dip behind the ripple every once in a while, but about a minute into the piece, the song passes through a cloud of darkness. The walls close in, the room wobbles and the organ rises with Floydian ripples that lap against the brain in alternating waves tension and tranquility. It’s a kiln-cooled ‘70s acid single for a new age and the keyboard work of Adam MacDougall (Circles Around the Sun, Chris Robinson Brotherhood) absolutely makes this one soar. Check out the melted mind video to accompany this one and keep it on repeat because this one gets kind of addictive. Bonus notes: the song was recorded on Jerry Garcia’s old Tascam 388.
