FIRST COMMUNION AFTERPARTY - Earth Heat Sound 2xLP (vinyl)
Double LP on classic black vinyl gatefold and download card
First Communion Afterparty was Liam Watkins, Marie DeBris and Joe Werner (from Driftwood Pyre) first band.
" First Communion Afterparty's music belongs to a distinct family: psychedelic rock. It's true: there is no other honest way to describe it. Their sound is built on psychedelic bands you've heard and some you haven't. There is nothing unfamiliar but there's a fresh personality behind it. Each song is an artful balance of dual guitars, bass, keyboard, tambourines, drums, floor tom and vocals from all over.
A sprawling commune of a band, these prophets of new psychedelia combine the percussive shake of a den of rattlesnakes with waves of guitar that warp and shimmer like heat coming off a stretch of desert blacktop. FCAP's loose-limbed bohemian jangle and drugged-out drawl are a seductive invitation to get on the bus and head west.
