Ancient Sky – “Garbage Brain” (Stereogum Premiere)

Brooklyn psych heavyweights Ancient Sky have a unique approach to hallucinogenic bombast: Two drummers, one of everything else (guitar, bass, keys). That rhythmic power is evident on “Garbage Brain,” the lead single from upcoming LP Mosaic. Brian Markham and company headed to Hudson with producer Ben Greenberg (The Men, Hubble, Uniform) to lay down the album, which they’re calling the best recorded approximation of their humongous live sound. Here’s what Ancient Sky had to say about this track in particular:

First song we wrote for ‘Mosaic.’ Kinda set the pace for the record. Written after major life changes.

Loss. A Pile up. Consumption. New Skin. New ideas.
