Anthroprophh – AnthroprophhPosted: October 4, 2014
Anthroprophh are an offshoot of a legendary Bristol psychedelic high-rollers The Heads, yet the sound of the new project is devoid of The Heads’ bombastic energy and general rock glamour. Instead, it goes even more for the psychedelic aspect, while reducing their sound to a series of crawling, slithery droning space rock compressions, switching between burned-out cavernous guitar solos and slowly paced, organ-based shamanistic excursions in the vein of early, VU-inspired incarnation of Religious Knives. In fact, I wouldn’t be suprised if Anthroprophh turned out to be one of Skullflower’s numerous side projects. Same extremely murky vibe with a bit of hasheeshian haze to it.
