Cardinal Fuzz and Sky Lantern Records are excited to introduce you to the debut vinyl release from Portland, Oregon's Lunar Grave. Lunar Grave have thrived since 2010 with releases across Cassette, CDr’s and digitally all bringing their dynamic kraut-psych infused jams via a vast array of rotating members.
For “The Sunstruck Forest “ Lunar Grave's ritualistic urges soar further into the outer realms as Lunar Grave zone in to meditative states via a free flowing and frenetic communal vibe. This comes into full effect on “2-3-74” as hypnotic grooves and fuzzed up eastern scales build layer upon layer, gliding you further heavenwards upon the trancelike atmosphere these mysterious Portland shamen have captured.
Lunar Grave rides high upon the same wave of behemoths like The Myrrors, Carlton Melton, Dead Sea Apes, The Evening Fires and the Cosmic Dead with a rural, lo-fi and experimental element that rarely appears in the heavy psych genre.

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

Holy smoke. One of the finest contemporary psych albums I've heard. Like an acoustic Annexus Quam meets Popul Vuh circa Brüder des Schattens meets Amon Düül circa Paradieswärts Düül meets traditional musicians from rural Iran playing Fairport Convention's Matty Groves. Forward thinking heads from southern Arizona making music as authentic and transcendent as it comes. Mushroom Head
