Track Of The Day #341: Black Hearted Brother – (I Don’t Mean To) Wonder

Now you’ll have to excuse me as I steady myself back on my feet after an unplanned swooning attack brought on by the appearance on our laptop screen and the accompanying of a heavenly overture ripping through the speakers of a teaser track from Black Hearted Brother. So what you might rightly say. Big deal. But pull up a little closer and prepare for a moment of jaw agape japery when I tell you that this lot feature members of Slowdive, Seefeel and Holton’s opulent oog amid their ranks in the guise of Messrs Halstead, Van Hoen and Holton.

Now if you’re still off the so what mind then I’d be inclined to fetch you a swift blow to head and suggest that maybe you ought to be tuned into a different website – one I suspect lacking in musical taste. An album under their collective arm being readied up for October release via the ever wonderful (when we see their releases that is) Slumber land / Sonic Cathedral entitled ’Stars Are Our Home’. by way of a sly teaser there’s ’(I don’t mean to) wonder’ to get your listening chops around – a 4 plus minute dream symphony on a locked flight course at warp drive heading into oblivion like some vapour trailing Valkyrie replete with effects pedals ratcheted to meltdown and showering the sound system in a honeyed star tripped carnival of cosmic snow bursts which all said should see lunar cadets in need of their galactic MBV, Ride and Daniel Land styled fix suitably satiated, as for us we’re off for a lie down due to a bout of radiant sunspots in the eyes.
