The Meskimo comes to us from the shores of the Bering sea with his latest feat of indie psych, ‘The Most Delightful Dirge’. If you can imagine the Aurora Borealis in futuristically aural form, you’ll start to get an idea of what kind of astral journey The Meskimo will take you on with his psych-tinged art-rock.
Glassy synths, psych-rock percussion, fuzzed-up guitars and the occasional distorted orchestral swell act as your guide through the instrumental soundscape that remains compelling through The Meskimo’s accordant uninhibited exploration. Falling short of dropping DMT, there are few experiences to indulge in that will take you higher than The Most Delightful Dirge; even the title itself leaves your mind open. The mere suggestion that delight can be somehow synonymous with mourning is enough to leave you in a pleasant mind hole for a fair amount of time.
The Most Delightful Dirge is now available to stream via SoundCloud.
