Great colaboration from two great bands. My heavier inner child favours the hawkeyes tracks however however the radiation flowers are a force to be reckoned with. This is gonna be on heavy rotation.
Favorite track: Hawkeyes - Atom Heart MF.

Incoming for July 7th: Hawkeyes/The Radiation Flowers split LP
Hawkeyes are a 6 piece instrumental heavy psychedelic space rock band from Kitchener Ontario. Their claustrophobic wall of sound flows from heavy, dark, and monolithic rock towards more spacious soundscapes and textured ambience that always worships at the altar of Pompeii.
The band formed out of sheer boredom in 2012 after several previous bands stopped making music. The debut full length 'Poison Slows You Down' was recorded and initially self-released on cassette in 2013 and was picked up and given a vinyl release on Helmet Lady Records in 2015. Several compilation appearances followed and a split 12" with like-minded friends Shooting Guns was released a few months later.
And now on the new shared split LP from Sunmask and Cardinal Fuzz, Hawkeyes rock out, space out and pound away with nods to classic acid rock, krautrock, ambient and beyond.
Saskatoons The Radiation Flowers revisit classic shoegaze and 4AD sound with a heavier guitar driven edge. Dark, smoky ambience with floating vocals play off against analog fuzz guitars and a solid low end.
Since releasing their 2015 self-titled album they have toured across Canada and played several festivals with Canadian tour dates this summer. They have recorded and released a split-7” with Swedish band The Orange Revival and also have a new full length LP out on Sunmask/Cardinal Fuzz out in July.
Three new tracks with a driving space rock instrumental, some beautiful, spacious psychedelic shoegaze.
350 copies on colour vinyl with full colour printed inner sleeve.

Their best album so far; perhaps Easterfaust is as good. These guys always change a bit but after all these years you recognize their style. The three pieces fit well together and make a nice album structure. peter1328
