I’ve listened to it front to back and I can honestly say this is the best podcast I’ve made in the last five months. Truth be told, I know there are plenty of people who do podcasts as their primary outlet, talk on them and whatnot (hey, I tried it once and reserve the right to do it again at some point), but if it’s between crossfading feedback from one song to another and writing a review of a new record, well, crossfading falls into the same category as just about everything else: Write first.

Fortunately, a longer span of time between casts makes it that much easier to pick tracks. Existence does not hand you a 45-minute Øresund Space Collective jam every day, so I thought that was worth featuring, and I just got Megaritual’s new vinyl for review, so I thought featuring their more recent single-song EP would work well too.

I’m happy with the blend overall, and with Asteroid setting the tone. Be patient with it. Let it unfold. Even with a rocking start, it gets pretty psychedelic pretty quickly, and only continues to move further out. My advice is go with it and see where you end up.

As always, I hope you enjoy.

Jonathan Hall ( Backbiter), Chavez on synth, organ and electric piano, and drummer Bob Lee, who makes his debut here in place of Hari HassinRomano leads the fervent charge that The Freeks ignite early with feedback and piano intensity on opener “Tiny Pieces.” The hook in that track revolves around the line, “No one’s gonna take me alive,” and that proves telling as regards the attitude of Shattered, which like its predecessor reminds at its meanest moments, as with the late-arriving and particularly blown-out “Ivana,” of Mondo Generator, but three records deep, The Freeks are less willing to be defined by their influences than by their songwriting.

They have more than enough stylistic command to establish fluidity to carry them through the swinging “Where Did You Go” and into the emergent swirl of “Strange Mind” — the first of Shattered‘s several really psychedelic tracks, joined later by “Sylvia” and much of side B, and maybe still the catchiest, though I’m partial to the gone-and-not-coming-back, dream-state sensibility of closer “Blow Time Away” — and while there are times listening to the effects churn later in “Sylvia” or “Strange Mind” or “Fast Forward” or indeed “Blow Time Away” when one has to step back and wonder how it is The Freeks can resist the impulse to just make a record of half-hour-long jams, since they so clearly could and probably put out three full-lengths a year of space rock mastery, the fact that they don’t makes them a more powerful group in terms of craft and gives their sound a dimension that even deep-field mixing can’t necessarily convey.

Though it certainly doesn’t hurt. Pulling out of the atmosphere of earlier cuts like the post-grunge strum of “I’m a Mess” and the fittingly motor-ready thrust of “Uncle Jack’s Truck,” the consciously-titled “There’s No Turning back Now” is only 1:48, but it serves as a trippy synth/effects introduction to Shattered‘s second half from which “La Tumba” directly feeds and expands, more patient in pace and rolling out to engaging heavy psych liquefaction. It’s not that structure disappears entirely, but the stylistic lean definitely changes its direction, and an experimental edge even works its way into the hard cosmic surf of “The Space Bar,” broadening The Freeks‘ established reach leading into the fade-in of “Fast Forward”‘s languid grandeur. Once again, there’s an underlying hook — “Just keep moving forward” feels a long way removed from “No one’s gonna take me alive,” even if the root message is similar — but it comes paired with Shattered‘s most hypnotic groove, and the pairing of guitar solo and organ at the end make it a high point of the album as a whole.

Naturally, the smash-into-ground of “Ivana” follows. I said the band telegraphed some of their moves, and they do, but it still works in terms of the aforementioned revelry, and as stark as “Fast Forward” into “Ivana” is, “Ivana” into the penultimate “Blue Shoes” — more of a middle-ground strut-rocker complementing “Where Did You Go” earlier — sets up the shift back into the ethereal for “Blow Time Away” to close out, and those final three songs summarize well the scope presented across the entire span, essentially a condensed version of what brings Shattered so smoothly together. “Blow Time Away” ends cold, with just a quick shot of feedback mirroring “Tiny Pieces,” and The Freeks make their way out of their sprawling-but-still-driven third offering with a resounding lack of pretense intact despite having married styles rarely bridged. There’s no doubt they benefit from the past experience of their component members, but as The Freeks hit maturity on their own as a band, their personality has only become more multi-faceted.

The Freeks Announce Shattered Release Date

Posted in Whathaveyou on October 4th, 2016 by JJ Koczan

Haven’t heard this one yet, but I’m looking forward to it. The Freeks‘ last outing, 2013’s Full On (review here), was a barnburner of heavy rock righteousness and I’d expect no less from the Los Angeles five-piece’s Heavy Psych Sounds debut (third album overall), Shattered. No tracklisting or audio yet, but the cover art for the CD/LP has been unveiled, a Nov. 11 release has been announced, and preorders have been made available for those who like to take care of these things early.

If that’s you, you’ll find the link below, as graciously sent along the PR wire:

California’s blazing hot punk’n’rollers THE FREEKS to release third album on Heavy Psych Sounds this fall!

Prepare for an unprecedented earthquake, world! Los Angeles explosive rock’n’rollers THE FREEKS have announced the release of their new album “Shattered” this November 11th on Heavy Psych Sounds.

With an inextinguishable fire, Californian five-piece THE FREEKS brilliantly fuses high-octane rock’n’roll, the raw energy of punk rock and hints of psychedelic bizarrerie. Just as if The Stooges had met Hawkwind. With former members of Fu Manchu or Nebula in its ranks, the band is anything but a newbie in the US rock scene. After two albums (“The Freeks” in 2008 and the widely acclaimed “Full On” in 2013), THE FREEKS are back with a blazing new effort to be released on Heavy Psych Sounds this November.

THE FREEKS – New album “Shattered”
Out November 11th on Heavy Psych Sounds // Pre-order

Everything has a beginning, whether it is by accident or design. A journey consists of trials and errors until finally reaching a full circle… ever evolving, revolving over and over again. Set in constant motion, the gathering of speed reaching ultimate vibrations until it’s all “Shattered” This can also be said in regards to Los Angeles, CA based quintet THE FREEKS, as they return from yet another complete orbit with their third full-length “Shattered”. What started as an accident brought on a thought, which then began a project that grew into a solidified unit of sonic purification! Led by Ruben Romano, the band has consistently moved upward since their formation in 2007 and have gracefully matured since their first self-titled LP released in 2008 on Cargo Records Germany. While the initial project collaborated with players from around the world, in 2010 Romano gathered together a more local unit of musicians, all baked under the L.A. heat, to achieve a consistent flow of creation. This was followed by their critically acclaimed sophomore LP “Full On” (2013) released on the band’s own label Freek Flag Records.

Now in 2016, THE FREEKS prepare to sling shot and extend the trajectory of their already existing orbital path by joining forces with Heavy Psych Sounds to release this latest revolution, fully ready to shake it until it’s all shattered!

THE FREEKS ARE
Ruben Romano – Guitar & Lead Vocals
Jonathan Hall – Guitar & Vocals
Tom Davies – Bass & Vocals
Esteban Chavez – Synths, organs, electric pianos
Bob Lee – Drums

The Freeks to Release New Album Shattered on Heavy Psych Sounds

Posted in Whathaveyou on July 13th, 2016 by JJ Koczan

Middle of November. It’s getting darker every day, colder. The mornings are cold, the leaves are starting to fall. None of this happens in The Freeks‘ native Los Angeles, of course, but for those of us living in the seasonal world, the heavy rockers’ third album, Shattered, should arrive just in time to remind that there’s life happening somewhere. It’s been three years since The Freeks issued their aptly-titled sophomore full-length, Full On (review here), and in that time their reputation as a vibrant live act has only grown. As the year winds down, it looks like The Freeks might provide a late-2016 highlight.

The release will be through respected Italian purveyor Heavy Psych Sounds, who announced signing the band thusly:
