If you imaged a Lo Fi version of the Black Keys, you’d get a pretty good idea of the Fuzzy reverberations from Uncle Einar’s latest Psychedelic Blues Rock track Carnival. The New Jersey, US artist has just released his debut album Find Me in the Twilight, Carnival is just one of the stand out tracks from the pioneering album. The soaring guitar riffs are still clear cut, creating an ethereal sound against the synth to sit above the heavy distortion and it’s just genius. Almost Joy Division genius with the way he throws that haunting chill into the mix. Uncle Einar’s sweet, unabrasive vocals fade into the track as you’d expect with any good Shoegaze mix. Somehow, Uncle Einars has taken all of my favourite genres and put them together in one sweet 5-minute progressive mix. With such a seamless progressive sound I have no doubt that Uncle Einar will be signing the dotted line on a record deal in no time.
