Melbourne psych-rockers Buried Feather return with their third album “Cloudberry Dreamshake”.
The album is the follow up to 2017’s “Mind of the Swarm”, a riff-heavy release that saw the band sign with German stoner imprint Kozmik Artifactz and local indie label Cobra Snake Necktie Records. Mind of the Swarm found fans both locally and internationally, earning an “Album of the Week” nod from PBS and being named one of the year’s best releases by Jus Oborn of UK doom legends Electric Wizard.
Honing in on the kaleidoscopic sounds of late 60s psychedelia, "Cloudberry Dreamshake" paints a more dreamy picture than its predecessor, but there is still plenty of gooey fuzz and stoner groove to keep loyal fans happy.
To celebrate the release, Buried Feather have put together a stellar lineup, including local punks Mesa Cosa, Sydney "flower doom" band Turtle Skull and kraut-rockers Brown Spirits.
