Album of the Week – Last Nite In Paradise by Aquarian Blood

From our friends at Goner Records comes the debut from Memphis punks , Aquarian Blood. For anyone who has kept up with the output from Goner Records over the last few years , this is what you have come to expect. Aquarian Blood have that punk edge that screams and howls authenticity. Give a listen , go see them live but if you get down in the pit, be ready for some serious shit.

from their bandcamp:
Aquarian Blood began as the home recording project of husband & wife J.B. and Laurel Horrell – both of Moving Finger; he of Ex-Cult, and she formerly of Nots. The duo yielded two now out-of-print tapes of total trippiness on the ZAP cassette label before adding a crew of 4 (sometimes 5) Memphis degenerates from assorted generations to play hypnotic, synth-y tracks based on the occult/cults, the paranormal, and other obscurities. The full band released a Record Store Day 7″ on Goner in 2015, and, more recently, a 7″ on New Orleans’ label Pelican Pow Wow. Last Nite In Paradise, 15 tracks that showcase a mix of those early ethereal tapes and the harsher psychedelic punk they stick to live these days, is their debut full-length, out February 10th, 2017, on Goner.
