Tym Records 056 Grinding Eyes ST 12 inch
Grinding Eyes seamlessly combine genres and ideas into fuzz laden sixties psych and pop. The songs are guitar and bass driven slices of horror movie soundtracks and surf tunes melded with garage and psych. The thumping drums drive things along at a heavy pace while the drone of the keyboards gives a slightly uneasy, but pleasant feeling to the whole mix. Matts vocals seem to be coming from some distant place while still being up front and engaging.
Recorded by Owen Pengilis (Straight Arrows) and mixed by Jim Diamond (The Dirtbombs, The Hives, White Stripes) and mastered in Detroit by Ghetto with both sides clocking in at exactly 18 minutes these 9 songs take you on a real journey of acid tinged British psych via Seattle, Detroit, Berlin and delivered squarely from Sydney, Australia.
This limited edition 12" is on green/purple vinyl available only through Tym records. The digital release is available on CD through Off The Hip records in Melbourne.
