The US psychedelic revival continues apace with the latest tripped-out Californians to commit a ’60s-influenced,
forward-looking sound to record. Golden Animals are a far-out rock and roll duo with a full-blown rock sound that’s bigger than their stripped-back gear should allow.
The band’s chief inspiration is the blues, be it the foundation blues artists of the ’20s and 30’s or the interpretations of the genre created by The Doors, Cream, Hendrix and The Rolling Stones.
The Golden Animals’s brand of blues is built on austere beats, slide guitars and fuzzed-up vocals, here produced by Chris Cody (TV On The Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Massive Attack) and mixed by Thom Monahan (Pernice Brothers, Gary Louris, Devendra Banhart). It’s the sound they were born to make -if you believe the fortune-teller whose mysterious predictions were the catalyst for the formation of the band.
Baltimore-born Tommy Eisner (guitars) and Swedish-born Linda Beecroft (drums) met late on Linda’s first day in
Brooklyn, New York. Before long, they started travelling Europe and America together, with just a suitcase, an acoustic guitar and a tambourine to their names. Back in Brooklyn, the scene began to be a drag, and the pair hopped in their van and headed west, eventually settling in the Californian desert.
The album was written in five months of total isolation while Tommy and Linda lived alone on a Californian desert ranch, visited only once a week by the owner of the land, a fellow ’60s rock fanatic. In 115-degree heat, the duo
survived on raw food and wrote and practiced whenever and wherever they wanted.
