Songs Feeds’ Love Letter to a Record series asks artists to replicate on their relationship with the audio they love and share stories about how it has affected their life. Here, The Grogans’ lead vocalist and guitarist Quin Grunden raises a glass to The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s Revelation (2014).
Melbourne garage pop and rootsy blues rockers The Grogans just produced their 3rd album, Which Way Is Out, by using regional indie label, Cousin Will Information. Which Way Is Out follows The Grogans’ 2019 debut, Just What You Want, and 2020’s Working day / To / Day. The new file consists of the singles ‘Inside My Mind’, ‘Be Your Man’ and ‘Just A Kid’.
The Grogans’ Enjoy Letter to The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Quin Grunden: It is normally a amazing notion selecting a favorite album as a collective simply because we adore this sort of a wide and diverse catalogue of audio. So, for this, instead than selecting a nostalgic typical from the Stones, AC/DC or Donny Hathaway, we wanted to share our appreciate for an album we uncover timeless in the modern-day working day.
The Brian Jonestown Massacre have been occupying our minds for some time now, but in certain their album Revelation. This album finds its way into anything at all we do independently and as a band, I think mainly because it is tremendous melancholy and doesn’t in good shape a specific temper or genre.
A lot of the tracks merge a droning rock’n’roll factor with roomy drums, acoustic guitar and delay-saturated vocals, which ticks all of the containers for us. In direction of the conclusion of this album, they even start off exploring digital and experimental elements.
One particular of the stand-out tracks is ‘Food For Clouds’. You will get dropped in this monitor but only for superior explanations. The melodies are wonderful and complicated, but shipped in this sort of a very simple way. At a single time there are at least three specific melodies coexisting around each individual other, fusing to create this huge wall of bliss.
The Brian Jonestown Massacre – ‘Food For Clouds’
I really feel like we actually fell in love with this album just after observing a doco about them identified as Dig! – seeing the pure chaos that they had been as a band and their skill to pump out several albums a 12 months with no intentions of at any time halting. The band also never ever seemed for mainstream fame but as a substitute needed to continuously evolve their audio.
Immediately after watching the doco, we couldn’t end diving further and deeper into their records. Revelation summed it up for us, did it all, and designed inspiration although also leaving us with an album we can take with us anywhere, at any time.
