My Aunt and Uncle visited last week and dropped off a few crates of tasty vinyl, particularly 60’s and 70’s era psychedelic rock. The boxes are still sitting on the floor annoying my wife to no end, but I suspect when I finally dip in there to discover some of those timeless lost gems, I’ll hear something that sounds comfortably similar to “Rotten,” the intoxicating new single from Gringo Star.
Powered by filthy guitar hooks, and spacey vocals, the new single oozes an addictively groovy psych rock beat. I know this doesn’t really compute, but it’s a nostalgically fresh take on rock and roll; and it’s a song that I can’t get enough of.
“Rotten” is the lead single from the band’s forthcoming release, The Sides And In Between which hits the streets on August 26th, via Nevado Music. The Atlanta band has taken advantage of the recent surge of psych-laced rock acts to nudge their way onto the new rock landscape, and I suspect they’ll be on our radar for awhile.
