I felt like the first 20 seconds of this song had me circling the track, watching it unfold from above as some sort of celestial being. Of course, that’s probably what Purple Pilgrims would want for any listener, as they craft this spaced pop that seems to expand beyond the realm of our own universe. There’s core lyrics, but they’re accented by this angelic haunt that sort of drifts in and out of the mix, as if that core vocal is this central force from which the whole of their musical galaxy expands. The group return to us mortals with their album Perfumed Earth on August 9th via Flying Nun Records.
Ariel Pink has a nice tour bus. Austin’s home base for Graffiti that will Haunt you is The Mohawk.
Mr. Round and Round brought along two acts to keep you guessing. Purple Pilgrims is a trippy psych duo still taking the edges off while Kirin J. Callinan takes a crap ton of effects pedals to craft layered and fairly aggressive tones.
