RED SUN ATACAMA – DARWIN
One more for the road! One more Friday Freebie! I mean, I think it’s still Friday in Hawaii? Right? It’s the amazing new DARWIN album by RED SUN ATACAMA!
RED SUN ATACAMA combine desert rock psychedelia and punk fury. Spread through the impetuous fuzz of Californian desert rock, the Parisian trio praise the burning sound of the desert and the Holy Groove with irresistible slashing riffs! Heavy rock, psych or punk rock merge with unique and adventurous Chilean touch.
Or as that dingbat Joop Konraad wrote on Stoner HiVe: “Praised be the Parisians that have been rocking out under the moniker RED SUN ATACAMA since 2015! And praise be Darwin, their newest album! Even though the release date is still almost a month away, we could not help but immediately jog down a few words of praise about the six tracks featured on this slab of heavy gold. Cause we already mentioned that so incredibly many great promos arrived in the past weeks and months; well… This is one of those records that immediately grabbed us by the throat as well! If Brant Bjork was here we would tell him that this is some true desert punk. Inspired by not only the Californian desert, but also the mystical magic from the South American ocean of sand, the six tracks on their new Darwin album have this furious and angular edge to it all; turning riffs into choppy and bouncy propellants. And it all starts so lovely, laidback, and classic with that one-minute opening intro 11-CH. But as it shifts gear into the eight-minute following second track Furies, the drums slowly but steadily preparing you for what will surely be arriving soon, the riffs circling, building it all even more into a hotbed of anticipation… And then… The release! Here we go! Kamikaze! Let’s attack! Let’s go! With psychedelic touches, mostly used for a moment or respite and to make what comes next even more volatile and dangerous, and yes, a whole lot of fuzz the RED SUN ATACAMA three have delivered one of those legendary records that will surely turn everybody’s head and turn everybody on. And, well, make everyone go crazy! For Darwin is explosive, wild, stunning, and extremely addictive!”
