Feral Ohms ‘Living Junkyard’ 7″

Posted in Feral Ohms, New Releases with tags , , , on June 7, 2013 by Secret Serpents

Feral Ohms was formed in 2011 by three Bay Area underground rock vets from Comets on Fire, Drunk Horse, and Nudity. Loud, super-fuzzed, just over the border of psychedelia into a darker, harsher jungle. Doses of concrete basement West Coast 80s punk, 70s hairy bare-chested wall of amps festival rock, 90s Screaming Japanese underground and various other forms of scuzz, primitive, biker and outcast rock and roll mutations abound. There will be a one-time only pressing of 500!

As with all Valley King Records releases, the artwork is by Alan Forbes. The packaging is silkscreened and signed & numbered by Forbes. Each single will also come with an exclusive sticker!

In addition to the regular edition of 500 on black vinyl, we are releasing a very limited amount on colored vinyl. We are also selling the original artwork by Forbes which will include a copy of the record on colored vinyl!

Check out Aquarius Records recent review of the Black Elk Medicine Band – Santa Ana single:

The latest from local label Valley King, is the first release from Black Elk Medicine Band, the solo project of Isaiah Mitchell of recent aQ Record Of The Weekers Golden Void, as well as psych rock shredders Earthless, and in BEMB, at least on this single, Mitchell is joined by Phil Manley (Trans Am, Life Coach, The Fucking Champs, etc.) and John McBain of the mighty Monster Magnet (and Carlton Melton!). You’d never know it on the B side, which just happens to be the one we listened to first – a dark, brooding, seventies sounding psychedelic drift, swirling soft tangles of slow burn guitar shred smolder, draped over a thick, ominous sprawl of sinister synth buzz, sounding like Mitchell’s homage to Funkadelic’s “Maggot Brain”, the same sort of dark psych brood, tense and emotional and moody.

But flip the record over, and Mitchell and crew let loose with a heady barrage of spaced out psych that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Golden Void or Earthless record. A simple skeletal programed rhythm pulses away beneath clouds of heavily flanged riffage, and yep, some seriously soaring heart of the sun shredding, sounding almost like a snippet of a much longer jam, fading in, the action already underway, the band locked into some seriously tripped out psychedelic mesmer, Mitchell laying down another blast of tangled super emotive guitar god leads, over a tranced out motorik background, eventually fading out, as if the actual jam, the one we just got a single side glimpse of, continued well on into the forever.

LIMITED TO 500 NUMBERED COPIES!! In a swank sleeve featuring all new artwork from artist Alan Forbes, each one signed!
