"Chill out music that rattles your fucking skull is the best way that I can describe Greek band Craang's debut release "To the Estimated Size of the Universe". The album consists of four songs and all clock in at seven minutes or more. Within these four songs is an outlandish and sporadic bludgeoning of the human mind. At times mellow and soothing and at times chaotic and tumultuous, the beautiful fuzz drapes over a bounty of psych-laced riffs spiraling out of control with a deluge of feedback and pounding rhythm.
My favorite track on this album is "Magnolia". A mind-melding journey that concludes with an ominous bass line that jabs through a swirling wall of feedback then fades out into a spooky psychedelic barrage of soft guitar. Absolutely fuckin' stellar!
Now, if only I had a gyro and some spanakopita to jam down my throat my night would be complete.
