German blues/psychedelic rock quartet Gavial are sharing their full-length VOR, which will be released through Exile On Mainstream tomorrow. The album was recorded in the band’s rehearsal room and mixed by Benjamin Butter and Bernard Camilleri.
Listen to the album here:
According to the press release:
Formerly known as Tourette Boys, Gavial weave musical inspiration from ambient, soul, gospel, and country into different threads from a carpet of sound that simply ignores the sharp cliffs of redundant categories such as retro or stoner. VOR is characterized by the search for a contemporary expression of the blues without questioning its authenticity. The music doesn’t need name-dropping, but if you still want to make room in your thematically sorted record shelf, you’re welcome to make some room in the compartments in which you put your Screaming Trees, Flying Eyes, Black Crowes, or Woodcocks, so that gavial can find space in them.
Exile On Mainstream will release VOR on Black Vinyl LP and digitally this Friday, May 19, and a limited CD is available at the band’s concerts. Find preorders for the LP here and digital here, and watch the previously issued video for “Circles, Part 1” here.
