Blood of the Sunworm

The Giant Skyflower Band are the side project of Glenn Donaldson, founding member of psychedelic folksters the Skygreen Leopards. Blood of the Sunworm is their debut LP, a hazy marijuana-fuelled disc of gentle acoustic guitars, fuzzy bass and noodling sitars. It’s soaked in nostalgia for the late ‘60s; the kind of thing it feels like you could have heard being playing by a couple of lonely hippies on a sun-drenched hilltop during the summer of love. It’s loose—more interested in creating a laid-back ambience than in producing catchy hooks, with a few instrumentals and plenty of droning sitar, but when the band does engage in a little more melody the results are usually worth it.
