Blaak Heat Shujaa, The Edge Of An Era LP
The follow up to the Los Angeles trio's critically acclaimed Tee Pee debut EP, The Storm Generation, The Edge Of An Era sees the über-talented band’s enticing blend of genres combine to shape a sound unlike anything you’ve likely heard before; one that has been called “a dissonant symphony unveiling visions of great natural expanses.” BLAAK HEAT SHUJAA’s transcendental tension between its heavy rock roots and an organic inclination to drift towards psychedelia pays homage to the vast collection of mind-expanding sounds the trio grew up on: neo-psychedelia, surf rock, spaghetti westerns, Middle Eastern scales and even Far Eastern melodies! Produced by desert session legend Scott Reeder (Sunn O))), The Obsessed, Orange Goblin) and mastered at Ventura, CA's Golden Mastering (Primus, Sonic Youth, Calexico), The Edge Of An Era boasts guest appearances by both Nobel Prize-nominated gonzo poet Ron Whitehead and desert rock pioneer Mario Lalli (Fatso Jetson, Yawning Man) adding even more color to BLAAK HEAT’s signature psych rock! Prepare to take a windswept magic carpet ride over vast plains of desert soundtrack psychedelia!!!
"Parisian trio Blaak Heat Shujaa has decamped to L.A., and the scorching of year-round sun pleasantly stains this psychedelic desert-rock record. The band moves between thick, bass-driven riffing, lo-fi surf rock, Cisnerosian lyrics, cues that sound borrowed from an Ennio Morricone score, and even slam poetry." – THE ONION
"Colored by elements of garage rock, surf, classic Western film soundtracks and even the occasional Middle Eastern twinge...a sweet, hot, brain-stretching album." – EXCLAIM!
