HAR­MONY ROCK­ETS WITH PETER WALKER

UNCUT - - New Al­bums - Jon dale

Lach­esis/Clotho/Atro­pos TOMP­KINS SQUARE 7/10 Mer­cury rev and friends, with spe­cial guest

In 1995, Har­mony Rock­ets re­leased a fan­tas­tic, over­looked psych-rock al­bum, Par­a­lyzed Mind Of The Ar­changel Void, and two years later, a cover of “I’ve Got A Golden Ticket” from Willy Wonka & The Choco­late Fac­tory. As the al­ter ego for Mer­cury Rev at their most ex­per­i­men­tal, Har­mony Rock­ets’ mu­sic has al­ways felt open-ended and wide-eyed – here, with cult gui­tarist Peter Walker, ex-Sonic Youth drum­mer Steve Shel­ley and Wilco’s Nels Cline in tow, they’re back on that form, with two long, lovely drone-outs, buzzing and huff­ing around an eter­nal mono­chord, and “Atro­pos”, a gor­geous, deep, cos­mic coun­try come­down.
