The Warlocks Skull Worship on 180g LP
Skull Worship (Zap Banana) is the first new album from The Warlocks in 5 years. Recorded over a 2 year period, Skull Worship is the Los Angeles-based band’s eighth album and it finds the group constructing a dense, more elaborate web of sound with layers of distortion and the occasional synth a la Silver Apples and Red Crayola.
“Silver & Plastic” expands the Warlock’s oeuvre into acoustic territory recalling T Rex. Other songs like “Endless Drops” turn to Hawkwind, Neu! and experimental rock for inspiration.
“Not everything fits perfectly on this record,” describes singer Bobby Hecksher. “There are loose parts, fragmented sections and then it rocks all together. It's not perfectly polished like a lot of records out there. More like an expression of moments in time that drip together like a strange dream.”
Bobby continues, “I consider Skull Worship the final musical piece of the trilogy which started with Heavy Deavy Skull Lover, then The Mirror Explodes and now Skull Worship. They are all supposed to be connected with similar cord changes and fragmented weirdness.”
"Some bands play chords, but the so-far-unstoppable Warlocks play clouds - songs that swirl around you like smoke and probably leave a little haze in your head, too." - LA Weekly
