MR.BISON Premiere “The Child of the Night Sky”; Echoes From the Universe Out Feb. 16


Italian heavy psych rockers MR.BISON will release their new album, Echoes From the Universe, through Heavy Psych Sounds on Feb. 16. The Tuscany-based four-piece were announced as having signed to the imprint last week, and today brings preorders and the first song premiere — LP-opener “The Child of the Night Sky” — which is streaming for your pleasure under this text.

Next year will mark the 60th anniversary of the first time humans heard the echo of the Big Bang in cosmic background radiation. MR.BISON, working more on the temporal than the cosmic end of spacetime for this third full-length follow-up to 2020’s Seaward (review here) and their split with Spacetrucker (review here), would seem to use the universe itself as a means of exploring notions beyond linear time, ideas from myth and science fiction combining to give a thematic heart to the proceedings. I haven’t heard the full record yet, but “The Child of the Night Sky” is way tripped out, and if you thought the band — whose moniker you’ve probably seen stylized as Mr. Bison; they reportedly prefer the caps-no-space version — were flexible as they hit into Seaward after 2018’s Holy Oak (review here), the intervening years would not have seemed to lessen that in the slightest.

Song’s here, blue copy follows. Go make friends with it:

MR. BISON – New album “Echoes From The Universe” out February 16th on Heavy Psych Sounds

Preorder link:

About the album, the band says: “The theme of “Echoes from the Universe” is the attempt, as human and temporal beings, to escape the idea of an alleged destiny predetermination by managing to build one’s own individual life path trough will power. Its concept is based on the of the Norse Norns myth, who weave the threads of universal destiny on a tapestry, in which all existence, in a continuous mix of past, present and future, intersect and influence each other, thereby generating a kaleidoscopic vortex of infinite and unpredictable possibilities. For this reason, we have used them as a symbol of freedom of choice, which never excludes but indeed implies, the element of chance.”

The artwork designed by Django Nokes reflects the Concept perfectly. “Echoes from the Universe” is an evocative soundscapes trip and fresh breeze of groovy beats and psychedelia swaying between sweet moments and massive progressive deliriums.
