LA GRANDE ARMÉE ~ La Grande Armée (2019)
Three tracks of mellow,spacey jams that ebb and flow keeping you transfixed like the contents of a lava lamp. Starting off gently, each song builds on a foundation of trance inducing rhythms interwoven with languid guitar, locked together in a flux of hypnotic pulses. This is one of those albums that you play, close your eyes that are heavy from herbal assistance and lose yourself in, swept along on a sea of reverb and delay
The track 'Normandia' is a personal favourite. Here, the lead guitar is allowed to dominate more and splinters off from the base of the song, sounding more aggressive in the process.
I'd love to hear more from this band.
