Following up their excellent album of space-sliced psych from last year, L.A.’s Hoover III return with a new single on French enclave Six Tonnes De Chair. Starting with a riff that scratches the ol’ runes of Sabbath in the sand, the band proceeds to drive the track in a lighter direction, welding the heavy guitar chug to echo-dripped harmonies. The track doesn’t just troll for grooves, though. As they arc into the second half the band stomp boxes the warp drive and takes “Fathom” through a few layers of cosmos. Hoover III have been working a particularly potent strain of Space Rock in their first couple of releases, and if this new single is an indicator of where they’re headed, then the next LP threatens to be one to watch out for. In the meantime, this is a good reminder to shake the earthly tether once in a while.


“…like one of those heartwarming Michael Rother autobahn instrumentals with an injection of Pink Fairies/Hawkwind/Larry Wallis guitar nitro.”

The Band:

Bert Hoover : Vocals / Guitar
Gabe Flores : Vocals / Guitar
Kaz Mirblouk : Bass
