“The Australian alt-rock band Summon The Birds were introduced last year. Earlier in the month they released the six track LP Blood Love, which is available on bandcamp. A set of songs in to which the listener digs their spoon in sumptuous dumplings of warming music that makes life better for its very presence.
The material is drawn from that well of the creativity of early ’70s progressive psychedelia which they approach from the direction of that materials folk inspired derivative, to create songs that hold a calm, yet multilayered and slightly trippy, texturing without throwing the mind in to a full on psychotropic trip, rather stretching out on scattered cushions while gazing at a ceiling aglow with spinning purple hued crystal refractions of light.
The just under eight and a half minutes antepenultimate track is Journey To The Centre Of The Earth being my pick of the release.”
