Space Bats, Attack! – EP1Posted: June 15, 2014
The cover of this album by the Dunedin, New Zealand based power trio Space Bats, Attack! might bear some serious resemblance to the cover of Thee Oh Sees’ 2009 Help – and quite rightly so. The self-proclaimed “space doom rock” band follow the great tradition of New Zealand stargazers with the proper heavy punch to boot. As one of the band’s connected to the Dunedin based initiative and record label The Attic, EP1 are four tracks full of solid, psychedelic energy and a slightly dystopian, even post-apocalyptic edge (as one of the tags suggests on the Bandcamp page). Lovable underground jamming from the attic. Recommended!
