Ecstatic Vision

Weekend Warrior, March 10 - 12

As one descends into subterranean cement-lined confines of Underground Arts this evening, a cavalcade of the city’s heavy-psych noisemakers will meet you on the inside. Cultivating a cozy temperamental air gently permeating the auditory system with hazy melodies before escalating into the ethereal, Creepoid delivers the calm and then the searing storm.  Speaking of sear, Purling Hiss pummels and rips through a fog-filtered, psych lens, delivering raunchy riffs among unrestrained rhythms. Meanwhile, with their new album, Pleasure Suck, due out in two weeks via Tiny Engines, the disorienting but enchanting surge of The Spirit of the Beehive will be on display. Likewise, the “raw rock fury” of Ecstatic Vision, whose aptly titled forthcoming album of the same name, will be available next month via Relapse, torching a menacing mesmerizing hole in the mind in the process.
 
For those seeking other accommodations, the bombarding, brutal, soul-crushing stomp of Pissed Jeans will celebrate their new album, Why Love Now (Sub Pop), with a pair of sold-out release shows Friday and Saturday at Boot & Saddle and PhilaMOCA respectively.

New Track: "The Electric Step" - Ecstatic Vision

Raw Rock Fury, the new album from Ecstatic Vision, is slated for released on April 7 via Relapse. “The Electric Step” cultivates a heavy, hazy, rhythmic air of anticipation, before the guttural ooze of sorcerer-style vocals descend from the mountaintop. The long-form nature shifts you into the band’s fire-breathing, axe-wielding ferocity. And before the crew heads down to SXSW, catch them this Friday, March 10 at Underground Arts as part of an epic bill that also includes upcoming tourmates Creepoid as well as Purling Hiss and The Spirit of the Beehive!

New Track: "You Got It (Or You Don't)" - Ecstatic Vision

Ecstatic Vision demonstrated that they are one of the heaviest pysch/krautrock acts coming out of Philly with their debut album Sonic Praise, The Deli Philly's July 2015 Record of the Month. And it doesn't sound like they are letting up anytime soon with the band's new single, "You Got It (Or You Don't)". Doug Sabolik's unrelenting guitar shreds and bellowing howls are what rock 'n' roll dreams/nightmares are made of. You'll be able to find Ecstatic Vision's latest on their forthcoming LP Raw Rock Fury, which is set to come out on April 7 via Relapse Records. They'll also be hitting the road in March with Philly pals Creepoid.

Harsh Vibes Opening for Ecstatic Vision at KFN April 2

Harsh Vibes takes more of an introspective shoegaze-y angle to psych rock, but drops it out of airy, ethereal textures with an oversized Acme anvil of fuzz and rude, distended guitar tones. The pairing of heavy psych and shoegaze evokes bands like The Telescopes, but unlike The Telescopes, Harsh Vibes has the capacity and the audacity to seemingly explore both genres and all the space between in just a single song. The disembodied vocals are sparse and seem to take a backseat to the hungry, fuzz-laden riffs and textural experimentation. Harsh Vibes will be helping to sendoff stony, rapture-inducing, Hawkwind-style freak rockers, Ecstatic Vision, as they head out on an international tour. Come wish them well, and embrace a bit of sonic nirvana! Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 10pm, $6, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock
