Melbourne psych outfit Beaches release a new single ‘Void’, from a forthcoming double album Second of Spring in September. Australian psych is really setting the pace at the moment, and this is no exception. Driving guitars and a relentless beat that doesn’t let up, like Dandy Warhols in a wind-tunnel, echo-drenched vocals, and yes I think it even speeds up slightly at the end, which we don’t hear enough of in music these days.
Their 2013 album She Beats even featured Neu’s Michael Rother on guest guitar, and earned them rave reviews.
Think Hawkwind in the Mojave Desert on peyote ( and is it a coincidence that Jim Morrison was born in Melbourne, Florida?) Step into the void.
