Yesterday I put up a playlist featuring bands that will be playing at The Bristol Psych Festival and Os Noctambulos are one of those bands. This is just one cool track, a great mix of garage, psych and everything else that I tend to jam away to, love this big time!!!
and Erin had this up a few weeks back , if you missed it then now is your time to give her show a listen…
from Stolen Body Records:
Os Noctàmbulos – Stranger
On June 17th Stolen Body Records will be releasing Os Noctambulos’ 2nd album, ‘Stanger’. Recorded on ½ inch tape reel to reel in 3 sessions between winter 2014 and spring 2015 at Corsica Gardem, Massy Palla.
Moving on from their first album ‘Corsica Garden’ which features songs in a mainly minor key, Stranger’s songs are mostly in a major key. Stranger is an album about isolation, claustrophobia, immigration and the strange times we live in. Nick, lead singer and songwriter, is originally from Sheffield and moved to Paris to pursue his musical career. Trying to find himself in a big city where everything and everyone don’t always agree.
Os Noctambulos sound mixes garage, psych and country with a glimmer of hope but always on the edge of despair. Nick’s voice hints at something unnerving, something not quite right yet somehow in control. The country influence is clear throughout but it’s all set inside a 60’s style garage rhythm with an overlay of psych.
Stolen Body previously released Os Noctambulos as part of a split with Plantains (now called Heaters) back in 2014. The split has since sold out. We also featured them on our compilation Vegetarian Meat Vol 1.
The album is being released on vinyl, CD, cassette and digitally. The artwork has been put together by artist Lucas Donaud (musician with Strange Hands and has made artwork for Avenue Z, Paris Psych Fest, Tame Impala, The Growlers). The cover has been made to represent an abstract take on a stranger walking into a city and the claustrophobic feeling of it all.
