Celestial NorthWest jammers DESMADRADOS SOLDADOS DE VENTURA slide back into town to lay out a dense tapestry of psychedelic grooves. Formerly confirmed devotees of a more-of-everything aesthetic, a few more years of recording and touring have seen the loosely-formed group drift into more introspective zones and earthier vibes that link long-form Can explorations to lonesome Charalambides-eque dusty epics, whilst keeping the spirit of Sunburned Hand Of The Man in sight at all times. Rotating around a central hub of Golden Lab Records and Chalaque leader, Nick Mitchell, DSDV's ever-shifting line-up could at any point feature folks from Spectrum, Electralane, Irma Vep, Burnt Hills, Former Bullies, and Inca Eyeball. The band's most recent release, The Grand Celestial Purge, is a 4-LP colossus that undulates invitingly, like an endless, swirling haze of Bardo Pond, early Santana, and a stretched-out Faust. Prepare to ascend.
