I'm in a sleepy mood, so I thought I should post something monotonous, slow and heavy. HaiKai No Ku is a project of Jerome Smith [bass-also playing in Oppenheimer (already covered here), Charles Dexter Ward and Female Borstal], Sam Booth (drums), and Mike Vest (guitar-also in Bong, Space Victim, Lobster Priest, and Basilica). The presence of Mike Vest should already say a lot about what to expect here: psychedelic vastness under a lot of guitar feedback, while the riffs and the slow, crushing drums pay homage to Skullflower IIIrd Gatekeeper-era, along with a touch of the blues. Ideal for grey mornings. 2013 cdr on Molotov Productions.
