Even with the Avant-Garde obscurity in Cave Suns’ danceably electric single ‘Sloop John Dee’ from their New EP ‘Surt Skum’, the tribally rhythmic pull of the single allows your pulses to register the arrestive instrumental improvisation from the first progression.
Each new evolution in sound hits you like an emboldening, radiating incantation. Any fans of the Telescopes, Gnod, Kill Your Boyfriend, Goat, Grateful Dead, Femur and Television will undoubtedly want to delve into the transfixing release which takes you on a 6 minute journey through the Newcastle, UK-based artist’s ingenuity.
I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to hear a new luminary powerhouse offering galvanizing droning fuzzy dark psych-rock instead of appearing as a carbon copy of the Beatles, The Doors or Pink Floyd. It’s probably for blackened hearts instead of the faint of heart.

‘Sour Milk’ is just one of the riotously dark and psychedelic tracks to feature on DR SATSO’s debut album ‘A Sour Milk Experience’.
For the non-discerning fans of Psych who stay in the safe confines of the overhyped works of the Beatles and Pink Floyd, the soundscape may be as pleasant as ingesting sour milk, but those with an affinity for truly mind-warping, rhythmically disturbing alternative music will definitely want to delve into this monolithic feat of Psych, Post Punk, Garage Rock and Punk.
As the bouncing frenetic guitars emit enticing similarities to the Oh Sees, the rest of the instrumentals coalesce to bring a cold cutting energy to the galvanizingly pioneering soundscape while the vocals will be a hit with any fans of Poison Ivy, Magazine and SERVO.
While Sour Milk hasn’t done my need to witness fuzzy and frenetically insurgent music live any favours, it did affirm that DR SATSO is undoubtedly one of the most viciously revolutionary artists to hit the airwaves in 2020.
You can check out Sour Milk along with the rest of DR SATSO’s sonically visceral album via Spotify.
