New York Psychedelics

Thanks to Jessica from the band Heliotropes for sharing their EP!
Heliotropes is an all female band from Brooklyn, New York. These girls play some great mesmerizing Grunge influenced Psychedelic Rock. According to MySpace Heliotropes is inspired by the following: Current 93, Spacemen 3, Spiritualized, Brian Eno, Pentagram, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Black Sabbath, My Bloody Valentine, Shirley Collins, Laurie Anderson and Sleep.
III is the title of their debut EP and that is a bit odd! This EP contains three nice tracks with awesome hypnotic vocals. I definitely like to hear some more of Heliotropes in the future! Enjoy!

I saw this album on Stereorobixxx first and got it there. It's been described as 'pop-doom' (on several sites) which is actually a decent description. I just don't think those two genres ever need to be merged.
But still, good job on finding something new and different!
