Ancient River – Keeper of the DawnPosted: September 5, 2015
Ancient River is a fuzzed out, Technicolor-tinged version of guitar psychedelia created by James Barreto and Alex Cordova. Recorded between Gainesville, Florida and London, UK it’s a somewhat vintage yet compelling and uplifting psychedelic rock with some shoegaze leanings, a bit like Noctuary by Chilean duo The Holydrug Couple. Between the swampy, bluesy anthems and slow synth nocturnes, there’s a recognizable scent of cannabis smoke and past acid trips that left a lasting impression. Recommended, if only for the absolute killer track that is “Mother of Light”!
