Official press release:
Philadelphia's psychedelic hard rock flag-bearers Ecstatic Vision announce the release of their fourth studio album Elusive Mojo on May 13th through Heavy Psych Sounds. Stream their flamboyant new track "March Of The Troglodytes/Elusive Mojo" now:
About this first excerpt, the band comments: "These were the first tracks written for the album and is a good bridge between the EV of old and the EV of 2022. It sounds like the Asheton Brothers jammin' some burly, unhinged heavy psych wit' da Flower Travelin Band circa 1971 except it's played by a bunch of low lifes from Philly."
Elusive Mojo finds Ecstatic Vision firing on all cylinders with this unhinged, raw and dangerous new album. The band continues down their unique warpath mixing heavy psych rock, Detroit-rock, proto-punk, and world music. The album contains caveman grooves that would rattle the remaining teeth out of the Asheton brother's skulls, scorching saxophones that would make Nik Turner feel high on a potent mix of speed and Viagra, and basslines hot enough to melt down the Lemmy statue.
Elusive Mojo was recorded live to 2" tape in their beloved hometown of Philadelphia by Joe Boldizar (Sonic Praise) with Bob Pantella (Monster Magnet) and mastered by their old drinking buddy Tim Green (Melvins). What emerged was a burly, timeless and unique sounding record that is hard to tell if it was recorded in 1971 or 2022. It will be issued on May 13th in various vinyl formats, CD and digital through Heavy Psych Sounds, with preorder available at this location.
