Leisure Birds, Tetrahedron LP

"While much of modern psych seems to be stalled in a bygone era, Minneapolis-based Leisure Birds look squarely at the future. While their synth-driven grooves may evoke hazy memories of Krautrock and 1970s experimentation, their aesthetic shies from the predictable shuffle that consumes current Psychedelic music: There’s no minimal blues here. No Shoegaze. Leisure Birds strip away the trappings that made an old genre tired. As Weed Temple writes: “Leisure Birds brings back the hope in the existence and future of psychedelic rock.” Leisure Birds continue their outward trajectory with the release of their third LP, Tetrahedron, a co-release by Moon Glyph and Totally Gross National Product. Using simple melody, hypnotic rhythm and highly constructed analog synthesis, Tetrahedron constructs a world on the edge of fiction and reality. “Sounds like what psychedelic music will sound like in ten years” -Bong Magazine
