Weird Owl is a Brooklyn band that resides in the heaviness inherent in the convergence of imagination, poetry and sound. First formed in 2004 and through its odd mutations involving changes in approach and personnel, Weird Owl has arrived at the present day in its most solid and powerful formation yet. Weird Owl has crafted a sonic mindscape inspired by legendary acts such as the 13th Floor Elevators and Crazy Horse that states its relevance to modern-day masters Black Mountain, Dead Meadow and the Black Angels.
In its first release for Tee Pee Records, entitled Ever the Silver Cord Be Loosed, Weird Owl has gathered together a tour de force of its peculiar craft--hypnotic slithering guitar lines, the strange breathiness of cosmic synths, a dash of the punishing heaviness of the riff--all contained within phantasmagoric song structures and expressed with the language of a true visionary experience.
Feel free to stop by and check out some of the goodies that have passed through my ears throughout the last few years. Delve into the archive and find something from every which era/genre. I more or less post psych/prog/folk/fusion stuff, although i do like to mix things up from time to time. Please leave a request or a general message in my chatbox, i always enjoy reading your feedback.
I'd also like to add that i think we should all be supporting these artists and the amazing work they do by buying the actual records or going to shows etc. So consider this a preview, if you enjoy what you find here, go buy it. Oh, and if anyone at any time wants me to take an album/link down from this page just shoot me an email or leave a comment in the desired post.
