Green Door Studio co-founder and sound engineer to the likes of Golden Teacher and MR TC, Stuart Evans is no stranger to music grounded in psychedelia. Releasing under the name Sordid Sound System, those same lysergic qualities colour much of his own output, and the upcoming outing is no different from its predecessors. A split release for Global Warming Records with long-time Ransom Note co-conspirator Sutja Gutierrez on the flip, they permeate every inch of the Glasgow native’s side as Evans takes control of the A.
While recorded from a new studio in Northern California, ‘The Void’ is more evocative of Arizona’s Sonoran Desert than redwood forests. A sprawling, quasi-psychedelic jam, think peyote ceremony against a vast, arid backdrop as opposed to the Giant Sequoias that were likely visible from his window.
Bend Your Standards is out June 3rd on Global Warming Records – pre-order here.
