Come with us now on a trip through psychedelic soundscapes and country rock & roll from a brilliant Brighton band. Expect mystical trips through mysterious lands as Sam Jordan & The Dead Buoys deliver an absolute gem of an E.P, all recorded on 16 track tape to keep true to its influential roots.
Sam’s influences are wide – Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, The Doors, Leadbelly, John Jacob Niles, Alan Lomax, Charles Bukowski, George Orwell, Hofesh Shechter, Pina Bausch, building (digging and concreting foundations), dogs, the last bus and the sea – and glimpses of all can be found and felt throughout the 4 track E.P.
Take a trip to the wild, wild, west – Psychedelic rock with wailing guitar riffs that would fit nicely on your playlist as you screamed through the Nevada desert on your way to Las Vegas.
A psychedelic trip through a strange lyrical story of dreams and metaphors that gives way to a real country anthem, Favourite Messenger pays homage to days gone by. What starts off as a strange audio version of an acid trip gives way to a beautiful and catchy chorus that is nothing short of infectious.
I’ve Never Seen Her Fall
A softer approach comes through here, more melancholy, but no less passionately pieced together. It’s a quieter, softer track, but no less passionate in delivery. A calm breather between two energetic songs that allows you to pace yourself a little easier.
The Stars Are Angels Marooned
I love a good thumping, solid drumbeat going through a track, and that’s exactly what you get with the final song of the E.P. There’s enough energy throughout to keep you tapping your foot and nodding your head till the end, and you’ll be hungry for more once it’s all said and done.
Thoughts Of Paradise E.P. is released digitally via Sam Jordan’s new imprint Oceans Post Transmission Co. (formerly Dead Good Records) on 16 December.
Catch Sam Jordan & The Dead Buoys playing on December 9th at Sticky Mike’s, Brighton.
