Field Recordings from the Sun
Limited vinyl LP pressing. 2002 release, the second album by psycho-psych freaks Comets Of Fire. Field Recordings From the Sun is the second album from West Coast skull-peelers and daisy-wilting psychedelic stormtroopers Comets on Fire. Joined by an armada of friends and hangers-on-including Tim Green of the F***ing Champs (who also produced) and Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance - the band erects towering tombs of natural ethereal beauty and pure sonic destruction set above a cosmic freight train of unhinged riffs and jagged grooves. And their drummer is more than happy to perform naked, you don't even have to ask. Field Recordings From the Sun demonstrates that melted guitars can sound just as good as the real thing. Maybe better, for that matter. This is old school being funneled into the future, garage rock unearthed from the tomb and infused with solar energy. These four Bay Area fellers grafted echoplex and oscillators onto a hard rock trio from hell and discovered that the results are a stoned avant-rocker's wet dream.
