Mondo Drag

German label Kozmik Artifactz released recently the sophomore record of US Heavy Psychedelic Rock band Mondo Drag. The album was recorded in the Winter of 2011/2012 at Future Appletree Studios Too with Patrick Stolley and features the rhythm section of Cory Berry and Zack Anderson (Radio Moscow, Blues Pills). 

The 3 core members of the band, John Gamino, Nolan Girard, and Jake Sheley actually grew up in the same area and played music with each other for over 15 years developping in the process a unique sound and rare cohesion. 

"Zephyr", the opening track of the album, with its driving organ reminiscent of Jon Lord circa "Machine Head" and 
eerie vocals is worth alone the price of admission. But the 
whole album is amazing with incredible cosmic sounds, flute and  some interstellar guitar work that reminds me of a young David Gilmour. 

The album's cover art was designed by talented and far-out artist, Robert Beatty. His unique style and surreal, other-worldly landscapes were perfect for this album.
