If proof were needed that ‘desert rock’ – as the genre has been lazily entitled – is a state of mind rather than a state of, say, Southern California, then it comes in the opening minute of the third track of Psychlona’s debut album Mojo Rising; “Down in the vall-EH,” announces singer Phil Hey, proudly stamping Bradford well and truly onto the map.
There’s nothing remotely sun-kissed about this album. It’s a gas-guzzling dumper truck bearing an unholy payload of kebab-, beer- and whisky-fuelled fuzz filth through the stoner landscape, taking no passengers and stopping only for diesel and dirty burgers. – TLE
