Philly’s buzzing psychgazers The Spirit Of The Beehive recently released their new EP You Are Arrived (But You’ve Been Cheated). They’re currently out on the road touring with Amanda X and return to Philly on September 9th at the First Unitarian Church.
While You Are Arrived is crammed with musical ideas to the point of claustrophobia, it all makes sense. Filled with found sound samples, blasts of distorted guitar, sweet, warbly melodic rushes, and full on shoegaze rockers, the EP brings to mind The Flaming Lips’ early classic, Oh My Gawd!!!, and the Swirlies’ Blonder Tongue Audio Baton.
For six songs – a little under 19 minutes, You Are Arrived completely holds your attention. Below, download the EP via Bandcamp.
