About Primordial Undermind
Primordial Undermind are a Boston-based Neo-Psychedelic band that takes the spacious, freaky atmospheres of A Saucerful of Secrets and invests them with an Indie Rock breed of noise. Songs are rolled out leisurely to expansive extremes with a variety of themes converging upon one another, each fighting to be heard over the roiling miasma of damaged sounds. Where most Prog and Psyche Rock is weighed down by its own indulgence, Primordial Undermind manage to get away with its hyper-pretentiousness, building a momentum and mounting a tension that pays off for the listener in not only the requisite chaotic freakouts, but also in plotted, semi-orchestral come-downs. Theirs may be artistic and intellectual Prog, but the abrasiveness of the recordings and the overall intensity will scare off any ELP fans while rejuvenating noise heads missing anything resembling the Butthole Surfers' "Two Parter/Psychedelic Jam" from Double Live.
