Liverpool Sound City: Cloud Control, Colourmusic: Shipping Forecast, Static Gallery


Psychedelic fuzz and a right ol’ beardy racket, Getintothis’ Mike Doherty is on cloud nine.

Cloud Control know their way around a good tune.
The gaze-pop of This Is What I Said has a sense of the absurd akin to early Clap Your Hands Say Yeah; it’s simply bursting with youthful exuberance ready to be swallowed up at the summer festivals for sure.
Oklahoma psych-rock in the form of Colourmusic absolutely shattered the Static Gallery, as well as many eardrums.
So distinct is their sound, they have two bass players, each one seemingly trying to out-do the other in turning the audiences ears into sponge cake.
The sonorous 10-minute mini rock opera The Little Death or the creepy Feels Good To Wear from the epic new album My _-___ Is Pink may have left some permanent hearing damage, but it’s certainly worth it, just take earplugs with you.
