It feels like a long three years since Danish garage-psych purveyors Baby Woodrose released their sixth album, Third Eye Surgery (review here), through Bad Afro Records, but the truth is it hasn’t, especially when they followed that record with the B-sides collection Kicking Ass and Taking Names (review here) early in 2014. Still, the more Baby Woodrose the better, so it’s good news that the four-piece will be hitting Freak Valley 2016 for an exclusive show.
As to whether the fest appearance will coincide with a new album or release of some kind — they’re no stranger to compilations at this point — I have no idea, but a boy can hope. If I hear of something, I’ll let you know. Until then, the announcement from Freak Valley 2016 follows here:
*** BABY WOODROSE will play an exclusive show @ FREAK VALLEY FESTIVAL 2016 ***
The Danish band BABY WOODROSE has capped its connection to the present long ago!
They can equally master late 60s Garage Rock, delicate Psych-Folk as well as raw and psychedelic early 70s Hard Rock.
Old fashioned yet timeless, forceful and brute: Baby Woodrose must be mentioned alongside names like Monster Magnet or The Bevis Frond as one of the important names in today’s Neo-Psychedelic scene.
In concert Baby Woodrose is a heavy and hallucinating psychedelic rock monster, who named itself after a Hawaiian climbing plant, which produces the highly psychoactive substance LSA, a chemical relative of LSD.
Singer, guitarist and songwriter Lorenzo Woodrose, the mastermind behind Baby Woodrose, must be considered the undisputed godfather of the Danish Garage Rock scene. From 1996 to 2003 he played drums with the Psych-Stoner pioneers On Trial before starting Baby Woodrose in 2001, first as a heavy power trio and since 2009 as a quartet featuring a second guitar.
Since then the band has plowed its way through the international Psych, Stoner and Garage Rock scene, releasing eight albums, playing more than 400 international concerts including appearances at Roskilde Festival, Roadburn Festival, SXSW, Rockpalast and Duna Jam.
