Is there anything trippier than a lo fi psychedelic indie jazz track from a bedroom musician? Probably not, which is why it was all too easy to fall into the cathartic grasps of the latest track by Guspy ‘Sublingual’ which was released August 20th.
If you could imagine Frank Zappa under a more bluesy groove, with plenty of dampened funk layered into the track, you’d get an idea of how transiently peaceful Sublingual is. You won’t find a lot of tracks you can listen you as easily as breathing, yet under the 18-year-old Los Angeles-based performers command the melodies float through the seamless progression. Vocally, the track couldn’t have got much more sonorous, there was plenty of playfully pensive emotion written into the lyrics around the soft drive of the beat.
You can check out Guspy’s latest track Sublingual for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now where you’ll also find the rest of the tracks from Guspy’s 2018 album ‘Pilgrim’.
