Featuring members of the Whigs and MGMT, this new band heads straight into psychedelic pop territory.
Best known as the former bassist for Athens rockers the Whigs and the touring guitarist for MGMT, Hank Sullivant is now the frontman for Kuroma, a psychedelic pop foursome that released their debut album Kuromarama earlier this year. They have a new EP called 20+ Centuries that's set to be released 30 October on Votiv Music, and in the meantime you can hear the T. Rex-meets-Flaming Lips track "Twenty Centuries in Time", in which a pitch-shifted Sullivant croons a spacey folk tune while sounding like he's been huffing helium.
"The song is based on 'The Second Coming', by W.B. Yeats," he explains. "I was hoping the vocal would sound like a baby singing, but I think it sounds more like an old lady."
He might be right, there.
