Sonic Jesus Releases Locomotive 7" Including Remix by Sonic Boom
After causing seismic shifts in the underground earlier this year with their debut album Neither Virtue Nor Anger, Sonic Jesus are back with a limited edition 7” featuring a brand new track, and remix by Sonic Boom aka Pete Kember from Spacemen 3 and Spectrum.
On Side A the remix of “Locomotive” maintains the track’s beautiful abstract vocals which evoke some kind of religious ritual or perhaps a lonely lament. The song is then propelled into the heavens as the band crashes in and Sonic Boom’s psychedelic treatment takes effect. The B side, “Never In My Mind”, starts off like a call to arms full of violence and energy, and continues its rampage pace like an adrenaline shot to the heart. The marching snare drum is overlaid with fuzz-heavy guitars and dark distorted vocals to produce a sound that is distinctly Sonic Jesus
