” they channeled some serious Hawkwind-Acid Mothers-F/i vibes and shoe-horned a lot of sonics into a short set … Apparently the guitar player for Caves Caverns plays the keys for locals Resin Pyramid who put on another stellar opening set at the Moon Duo gig. Really interesting stuff … well worth checking out in town if you need to get your feet off the ground.” (Mr. Atavist)

The free-form, instrumental heavy psychedelia that this Richmond band plays on their latest release, a four-song, forty-minute cassette, has many worthy antecedents. Most prominent are Ash Ra Tempel’s epic Krautrock space jams and Hawkwind’s acid-soaked biker rock. These trippy jams will pry open your third eye. (Andrew Necci, RVA Magazine)

“Improv psych from this Richmond 4-piece. Swirling fuzz, squealing saxophone, and a theremin cameo ensures this cassette to be an auditory interplanetary medium for your neurons. It’s a little more relaxed, but it’s a sound that lies somewhere between Raccoo-oo-oon and Comets on Fire. Less than 100 cassettes made. Get one from Sounds From the Pocket.” (
