Bigelf Cheat The Gallows on 180g 2LP w/ Exclusive Bonus Tracks
There’s nothing ordinary about the fabled Los Angeles quartet Bigelf and you can’t help but be swept adrift by the doomed mist of infectious melodies and chilling harmonies that collide with an otherworldly embrace of the psychedelic on Cheat the Gallows, the band’s debut release for Linda Perry’s Custard Records.
Bigelf's metallic circus-influenced music is a quilt of T.Rex, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, The Beatles and Pink Floyd. But the foursome, with their stovepipe hats and turn-of-the-century, Oliver Twist waistcoats, aren't exactly a novelty outfit. There's some serious musical muscle on their bones.
Tracks off Cheat the Gallows like "Hydra" and "Gravest Show On Earth" are mammoth slabs of ominous guitars and sloth-like rhythms, everything united by Beatlesque harmonies. The swirling, psychedelic, Barnum & Bailey sounds and Floydian romps into interstellar overdrive hover over the album like an L.A. smog, giving every track a hazy and doped but intoxicating feeling.
This 180g double vinyl set is presented in a gatefold sleeve package and also features the 3 exclusive bonus tracks "Snake Eyes," "Demon Queen Of Spiders" and "Don't Blow It."
