One of the coolest bands on the planet are UK psych-rock-doom outfit Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats. Having come off a strong third album in 2013’s Mind Control, Uncle A is poking their tweed ‘n’ weed heads out of the bong water long enough for the lucky among us to hear new tune, “Runaway Girls”. Pivoted off the same early ’70s Sabbath/fuzzball vibe, “Runaway Girls” sounds like a true late summer winner. It has that slow August feel, where the days are long and the sun burns a warm amber.
“My approach to writing is pretty much the same every time,” Kevin “K.R.” Starrs revealed to the Quietus. “We recorded Mind Control slightly differently from the other albums in that we went into a studio for two weeks solid and did everything at once. It was pretty intense and I’m not sure if I’d want to do it in that way again. I think the best way is to break it up over the space of a few months, live with the recordings for a bit until you start hearing it differently and then work on them again. I like the idea of going into the studio for a few days at a time and then taking a break from it all.”
Sit back, smoke ’em if you got ’em, and roll into the weekend cool-like with Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats. “Runaway Girls”.
