Boomkat Product Review:
Blowing out of Canada's Black Mountain Army art-collective like a scarlet slippered hurricane, 'Druganaut' is the first missive to be issued from this underground supergroup's forthcoming LP. Featuring members of Jerk With A Bomb, Sinoa Caves, Blood Meridian and The Pink Mountaintops, 'Druganaut' (oh, the verbal wit!) has a serious fire in its belly and wants to tell you all about it. Backed up on the CD by two extra cuts, 'Druganaut' is a bit like Mogwai but with a serious injection of 60's soul; Post-Brit Funk perhaps? Apart from the middle bit that goes all glam. Oh, and the Pink Floyd atmospherics. And Neil Young riffs... Whatever it is, it certainly skitters along at a sprightly rate and sounds nothing like you'd imagine a Coldplay support act to, with the B-side 'Buffalo Swan' a similarly expansive and backward glancing ride. Of the two CD bonus cuts, 'Bicycle Man' (from their split 7" with Destroyer) is Ye Olde rock & roll (handclaps and all!), whilst 'No Satisfaction (Campfire Version)' is probably much as you imagine.
