Brian Jonestown Massacre - Smoking Acid LP


A Recordings

180-gram single LP version, on black vinyl, of The Brian Jonestown Massacre's Smoking Acid EP, originally released as a double 12" in 2009. Following the band's extensive tour of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and a few select dates in New York (including at ATP supporting My Bloody Valentine et al.) in 2008, Anton Newcombe went to Berlin to focus on his next album. Four weeks before hitting the US tour in April 2009, Newcombe was bursting with ideas and went to Iceland where this five-track EP was recorded. Originally, Newcombe was heavily influenced by The Rolling Stones' psychedelic phase, but his work in the 2000s has expanded into aesthetic dimensions approximating the UK shoegaze genre of the 1990s and incorporating influences from world music, especially Middle Eastern and Brazilian music. This work mixes the traditional Brian Jonestown Massacre sound with Eastern influences and brings it up to date with the benefit of all the additional weirdness that's been discovered in the past 40 years.
