Live Review: Eucalyptus Echoes Psych Fest BNE - Beetle Bar (21.09.13)

My afternoon at the Eucalyptus Echoes Psych Fest kicks off with the Moses Gunn Collective. The first song sounds like a hot sunny afternoon viewed through a veil of smoke from your deck, full of shining heady riffs, before it speeds into an unsettling trip. Vocals enter in the second song, swimming amid a dense ocean of warm distortion with swicks of harmony from guitar before the drums lead it into a slow jam. Bass picks and play dashes of melody, with the poignant lyrics lending an emotional weight to the superb instrumentation. Stampeding drums and bass bring their well put together set to a close.
