Logen Ninefingers Purchased instantly upon hearing the three-part 'Children of the Sun' suite, the blood-red vinyl arrived a few days later and instantly took up it's place in my favourite LP's of the year list. This band came from nowhere and proceeded to blow away the cobwebs with their pounding face-melting heavy psych, where they find kinship with the likes of King Gizzard and The Lizzard Wizard and Thee Oh Sees. On heavy rotation! Favorite track: Children Of The Sun II.

    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Cardinal Fuzz are proud to introduce the European edition of Principium. The debut album from Wollongong’s Heavy Psychedelia outfit Velvet Elevator.
    With guitars set to Open C and amps, cabs and fuzz pedals set to 11, Velvet Elevator build a wall of sound so dense that at first it may seem too big to fit into your ears. Covering themes of Anthropomorphism, Religion and Armageddon and focused roughly on the Revelation chapter of the bible the two closing tracks of Principium tell the story of the Blood Moon which is traditionally a series of apocalyptic beliefs appearing in the bible. Velvet Elevator bring the dirge but they show there garage chops with a sound the shares comparisons to The Heads and Sabbath and of course The Wiz as tracks delve into Drone,Psychedelia and Doom. Heavy isn’t about volume, it’s about attitude and these Wollongong boys have it.
    A 300 Pressing on blood red and black swirl vinyl. Presented in a 320gsm gloss laminated wide spine sleeve with download code.
    “Flies like The Heads and Hawkwind with a huge dollop of Sabbath and Elexctric Wizard. Heavy psych dirges that will tear your nugget in half” Optical Sounds
