12th Art Rock Show: The Occultation Of Light

Mondo Drag - The Occultation Of Light

Liefhebbers van de psychedelische rock uit de jaren zestig en zeventig kunnen hun hart ophalen. Mondo Drag brengt hun nieuwe album ‘The Occultation Of Light’ uit en zij laten die tijden weer helemaal herleven.

Sean Gonzalez van Yell Magazine: “I don’t think epic even captures how grand The Occultation of Light is. I don’t think it is even in the same ballpark. There is the music of John Williams scoring a soundtrack which sports an ambitious journey, and then there is Mondo Drag spiraling through different progressions that pump up listeners as if they were spiking their punch with amphetamines with jam band tactics.

And they really know how to mess with your adrenaline. In Your Head (Part I & II) slowly builds up the crushing motif by enlarging how many instruments are throwing it at your ears until they pull out just when the climax of the song strikes. The rest of the song is a smooth ride led by a jazzy guitar and creeping synthesizers that get washed away with airy vocals. Their ability to take the theme of a song and umbrella it underneath one ambitious melody is churned out again and again throughout the 43 minute record.”

Naast Mondo Drag met The Occultation Of Light krijg je deze week: Vespero (By The Waters Of Tomorrow), The Doors (L.A. Woman), Øresund Space Collective (Good Planets Are Hard To Find), Crippled Black Phoenix (Mankind) The Crafty Ape) and Deep Purple (Live In Japan).
