This Just In: Comets On Fire

Back in print (and remastered) for the first time since 2001 and 2002, respectively, are Comets On Fire’s S/T and Field Recordings From The Sun albums. These guys were at the forefront of the early aughts psych/garage revival, ya know, before the revival turned into the standard. Space-case blues/face-melting fun, and NO – we won’t change the music! Check out a little more about each album below and this week’s in-stock list below all that. -MLE

Comets On Fire –  S/T LP:
Listen – “The Way Down”

“The first full-length release by psycho-psych freaks Comets Of Fire delivers dark and damaged acid rock served in a crude and blown-out speedball of Blue Cheer, High Rise, James Williamson and a shit-faced-drunk Roxy-era Eno. Methamphetamine and Schnapps-drenched lullabies take it straight into the sonic shitstorm, shifting from 4/4 power rock to imploding free form. Echoplex-treated tales tell of drug-crazed space travelers, graverobbers in love and cosmic cannibals. The album was recorded on 4-track with the levels in the bloody red in a basement and garage in Santa Cruz, California. Tinkering, mixing and sound manipulation with help from Tim Green (Fucking Champs, Nation of Ulysses).”


Comets On Fire – Field Recordings From The Sun LP:
Listen – “Beneath The Ice Age”

Field Recordings From the Sun is the second album from West Coast skull-peelers and daisy-wilting psychedelic stormtroopers Comets On Fire. Joined by an armada of friends and hangers-on—including Tim Green of the Fucking Champs (who also produced) and Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance (soon to be a permanent member)—the band erects towering tombs of natural ethereal beauty and pure sonic destruction set above a cosmic freight train of unhinged riffs and jagged grooves. And their drummer is more than happy to perform naked, you don’t even have to ask.”
