Boomkat product review for:

the holydrug couple - Ancient Land EP

Three heavy psychedelic rock jams from Santiago, Chile's The Holydrug Couple, presented by Brooklyn's excellent Sacred Bones label. Comprising spiritual soul brothers Manuel Parra and Ives Sepulveda, Holydrug Couple represent a flourishing Chilean psyche scene (Ives also plays in Föllakzoid) which is happy to revel in the classic forms of Jefferson Airplane, The Doors et al. The standout here is the multi-dimensional title track, a raga bluesy mid-tempo sprawl with a dense and misty atmosphere but enough clarity to be almost popp-y. 'Now' is a tighter, more guttural guitar churner largely dropping the vox for a grinding instrumental and the chanted vocal harmonies of 'Mountaintop' directly connects this sound with the likes of Spacemen 3 or their Chilean psyche ancestors, Aguaturbia.
