The Cumberland County Mean Gang: Crashing Waves
I present to you the new Mean Gang full-length, Crashing Waves. A classically psychedelic travelogue with shades of Tangerine Dream, Joseph Conrad, and Werner Herzog's Cobra Verde. Exotic-leaning and Krautrock-informed. A journey– o'er oceans, deserts, jungles, air&space, and upriver. Down into the blinding light, backwards into the dark places.
I myself am a Gang member (full-disclosure and just-so-you-know), and I am very pleased to share this thing with you. If you tend to enjoy visiting me at this spot, if it pleases you to partake of the treasures presented here, there's a pretty solid chance you'll take some pleasure in this thing, too. Try it out. If you're feeling generous, you could even let it blow your mind.
We've put it up on Bandcamp, to make it possible for listeners to give us some money, if they want. That could mean you, but it doesn't have to. The price is "name-your-price," which means it's free if you like (just enter "0"). Don't be shy about snagging it for free-- if you want to help support a wild gang of experimentalist explorers, then throw us a dollar or ten-- but what we really want is for folks to listen to it. I just want you guys to hear it, man.
If all that hullabaloo sounds like a bunch of malarky to you, and contrary to the bloggin' spirit, then I have a solution for that as well. I'll also upload a rip and link to it from here. But you'll have to go to the bandcamp site to get flac or whatever advanced formats you might prefer.
Go on this journey, amigos.
