What pops out when Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd shack up and have a hippie love-child? Washington, DC, trio Dead Meadow. And after 12 years and five albums, the band is preparing to release their most ambitious album yet.
This March, the psych-rock band will drop Three Kings, a full-length concert movie and accompanying soundtrack. Below, listen to an exclusive stream of album cut “To the One.”
The new song layers airy, echoing vocals over a loose bass groove and singer/guitarist Jason Simon’s distorted axe riffs and wah-wah pedal effects, which ooze early ’70s psych-rock power and experimentalism — spacey atmospherics included!
So, SPIN readers, what do you think of the new track? Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
