The "New Band To Burn One To" today is Tracker.
Tracker is an Austrian band consisting of varied elements of desert rock, Kraut, psychedelia and noise. Tracker create soundscapes in the classic rock trio format with guitar/bass/drums/vocals. These are
only cornerstones for a much more multilayered sound. Nasty sounds from self built fuzz boxes meet
psychedelic space parts, kaossilators compete with bizarre iPhone-synths, fat desert riffs dance with
grumpy lo-fi beats and the dusty elegance of desert rock is hijacked by monotone kraut-beats.
The band's 2009 EP was never given a proper release until it was voted best national record by fm4's (Austria's leading alternative radio station) “house of pain” crew. After learning of this accolade, the band was signed to Psychedelia/Space Rock label Sulatron Records. Their new album "How I Became an Alien" includes reworked versions of songs from their 2009 ep as well as some new psychedelicia-laced morsels.
This trio of musicians create a unique twist on the psychedelic/space/desert/noise genre with their bastard mix of Queens of the Stone Age meets Sonic Youth. Very cool spacey stuff indeed.
