Blackhoods – “Doomhound”
“Doomhound” is the first taste of the new Sunk cassette from Blackhoods, soon to be released on Los Angeles label Not Not Fun. As the title implies, “Doomhound” is a dark, primal, and utterly engaging slice of sun-fried psych-rock. This near 7-minute burner grabs a hold and doesn’t let go, as the repetitive guitar wails, gnarly feedback and mechanistic percussion leave no room for empty space. This is one that brings back memories of the hot summer, with seemingly no escape from the sweltering sun overhead. Put this one on loud and often and look for it to be available from the label later this month.
