San Fran’s weirdo psych sludge mongers, CCR Headcleaner, are finally dropping their debut lp, “Lace The Earth With Arms Wide Open” via their cohorts at Pizza Burgler Records. And man this is one wild trip down the rabbit hole yer gonna want to take now!!!!
"“After three years of shredding away San Francisco’s CCR HEADCLEANER have finally released their debut LP. Lace the Earth with Arms Wide Open: 2013 is a culmination of all the sweat and grime, hangovers and highs. Like a slow cooked pot of collard greens that’s been simmering for years, there’s no distinct flavor but a range of tastes to entice all corners of the palette. The A Side blasts off with ‘Bomb Suite,’ a vocoder enriched skull smashing intro with a nice let you back down to earth ending. ‘Steal the Light’ is a dreamy, pulsating fist pumper. ‘Fixx the Fan’ sounds like Neil Young on the astral plane. ‘Beyond Death’ is pure heaviness, one of those tunes that’s been rolling around since the early days, forming smooth edges like a stone washed by the harsh waves of the mighty Pacific. Side B kicks off with ‘Blood Hound,’ an ebbing and flowing chorus filled romp through the forest at night. ""Doo Wop"" is a wild new take on an old standard— atmosphere and beauty giving way to an onslaught of electric guitar doom. ‘Mirror Mist’ finishes it off with swirling, sound-drenched new-kraut epictry. Lace the Earth with Arms Wide Open or 2013—whatever you wanna call it—really runs the gamut. It’ll rope you in with layers of vocals and harmonies and sharp, sneaky hooks. It’ll blow you away with explosive breakdowns and pounding rhythms. It will lift you to the heavens and lay with you in the gutter. PLAY FUCKING LOUD.”—Mike Plaid, 2013. "
