Product Description

There are very few bands in the known universe that can draw upon such varied influences as The Stooges, Hawkwind and Can, but Brooklyn trio NAAM certainly fits the bill. With their new EP The Ballad Of The Starchild, NAAM creates spacey, spacious, garage-bluesy kraut-psych with an epic scope and altered state intergalactic musings about time, space and the future. A vintage-sounding offering that manages to include elements of trance rock, acid-blues and psychedelic star-gazing, The Ballad Of The Starchild is the perfect accompaniment for ''exploring inner space and imagining outer space.'' Over the course of the EP's 25 minutes of brain damage, NAAM aim to hold infinity in the palm of their hand, and eternity in a half hour. The sonic equivalent of a sheet of blotter LSD layered over hypnotically rhythmic bass lines, The Ballad Of The Starchild is a far-out journey where riffs fall from the sky and float off to planets yet undiscovered by science!

Format: Audio CD
2nd album from Brooklyn band of unusual psychedelic rock with an emphasis on controlled
presentation and mystic planetary exploration. There are a number of surprisingly mellow
instrumental movements, with classic prog-rock elements. Baritone vocals serve as a focal point
for bluesy, rainbow stoner riffs and keyboard squalls; and the combination drives a dark,
dramatic style that occasionally builds to a pressure point and explodes with a ripping blast of
rock. Some similarities to the Doors, Hawkwind, Monster Magnet, Quest For Fire.

Just finished listening to this one from NAAM, and ordered their previous LP to have in the collection. An extremely delightful album of good stuff!
