The Black Ryder

Hailing from Aussie lands, by the hands of the duo Scott Von Ryper and Aimee Nash, The Black Ryder came up to me as one the most pleasant surprises at the end of 2011, but I don't know why, I just decided to post it now. Maybe there are too many bugs in my head lately... well, whatever, never mind. The fact is, they are probably the most solid newcoming act dedicated to the so-called Neo-psychedelia which, in a less prolixous way, means an effervescent alchemy between the Shoegaze hazy sonicscapes and the twisted psychedelic cosmos. ]

This label is usually refered to bands like BJMBlack Rebel Motorcycle Club, Warlocks, The Black Angels and, as you imagine, The two ryders (sic) draw a lot of inspiration from these guys. However, despite of their inspirations, it's easy to see they have a strong identity, exploring the lush tapestries of Shoegaze (much in the vein of My Bloody Valentine Loveless-era, which links them to their "neighbours" of Tamaryn), deeper than their mates. Of course they still whisper Velvet Underground as it should be, but you can see (or better, hear) their sound is sweeter, more candid and serene than the one from the bands I mentioned above, or even from some upcoming bands like Blue Angel Lounge or the also aussie The Mornings After (btw, both also deserve a little space in here, don't you agree?)

Ok, right below you can find their maiden and only album so far. A lysergic and stellar voyage, whereas still sensual and soothing. Enjoy! ;)
