The Infinite Finite and Geologic Time

Owl Mountain Sessions’ second collaboration with avant-grunge innovators PSDSP has the Northern California trio leading us further down their intriguing path of sublimely dark melodic rockistry. While “Geology”’s almost psychedelic ruminations are more shining and atmospheric, being less steeped in ominous shadows than its pulsating predecessor “Shoulder”, its mood stays heavy and the flavor, deep.

“Geology” presents something transcendent with its viscous, smoldering build. The easy, golden shimmer of its sun-drenched introduction draws us first into a meditative rhythm. From there, lush imagery flows forth, and we gain momentum like blood coursing through the metaphorical corpus. Eli Carlton-Pearson’s layered contemplations pull us ever toward the core, but this is a different kind of introspection. Instead of becoming more compact, each phrase evolves and expands until molecular becomes magmic in scale. It’s like trying to retreat into the little hole in your head but falling instead into a cavernous galaxy of prehistoric ore glittering through the veins of your planetary brain. The infinite within the finite.

Down and Dirty Blues from WALTER TROUT: "Cold Cold Feeling" LIVE in Santa Cruz

WALTER TROUT brought down the house at Moe's Alley this past May, here combining his effortlessly blazing guitar talent and passion-infused vocals with the solid bones of the blues classic "Cold Cold Feeling" to deliver some truly “down and dirty blues”. Trout’s audience is absolutely smitten, for reasons quite clear!

“I learned this song from Mr. Albert Collins,” Walter Trout announces mid-song. "Cold Cold Feeling" itself, however, dates further back. Relatively unsung music hero Jessie Mae Robinson had composed this killer tune nearly 30 years prior to Collins's 1978 electric version. T-Bone Walker was the first to record "Cold Cold Feeling", in 1951. In contrast with Collins's silky-smooth groovin' approach, T-Bone's is all sass and dazzles with a sultrier swing. The song has since been covered numerous times through the decades, and Trout's version is a must-hear! (This live version was filmed on the fly using in-camera audio).

PSDSP's "Shoulder" Delivers Heady Brew of Avant Grunge

PSDSP's "Shoulder" Delivers Heady Brew of Avant Grunge

OWL MOUNTAIN SESSIONS 008 presents a heavy, heady brew of avant-grunge à la the Bay Area's cult darling PHYSICAL SUICIDE DETERRENT SYSTEM PROJECT (PSDSP). The Marin rock trio's sound frequently references the gnarly thrashing riffs of raw '90s grunge, but PSDSP's penchants for poetic innovation and unconventional elements have them going about their head banging in refreshingly artful, intellectual, rule-breaking fashion. A core inspiration for PSDSP is the life/death cycle within nature and the human psyche; their songs explore the forces of creation, decay, disintegration, and revival both surrounding and within us. Instead of dwelling upon morbid doom and gloom, however, PSDSP exalts the intricate, bewildering beauty hidden within nature's darker elements. At once sinister and joyous, "Shoulder" is a stellar example of PSDSP's brand of zen-filled angst, and is their epic first in a series of upcoming singles.
