The new album by Timothy Eerie titled Ritual has been getting much praise by our fellow music journals, an rightly so. We would like to think that IndiePulse is not “Late to the Party”, as we have been sitting on this review for a bit, but we would like to offer this as a well investigated homage to the genre of Psychedelic Pop that has grown to a larger field of music, rather than the few “one off” bands that have been reliving the music of the early 60’s and 70’s as throw backs and revivals. Timothy Eerie will set the scene.
Timothy Eerie has created an album that is very fresh and original, while taking cues from historical artist archetypes and audio soundscapes of the past, while infusing modern and original aspects, making Ritual a whole new type of music sub-genre. Listening to the album, I first found that transported me to a time where the concept of music creativity was to transport you to another place, within and without, into the stream of energy. While definitely being true to psychedelic era music, it is also quite a bit more intellectual. And with the lyrics having a flow that matches the music perfectly, it is complete and all inspiring.
Ritual is an album to be experienced, we offer the following link to the Bands Bandcamp page, the first track on the album The Transformation of Things is a delightful track that, to me is very much like early Pink Floyd meets T-Rex, it is also a bit chilling, as the tempo downbeat has almost a diabolical temperament.
Ritual is a full win and should be part of your new music experience.
Timothy Eerie, Orlando-grown, psychedelic pop group have been involved in the underground music scene since 2015. From their roots as a bedroom recording project, Timothy Eerie has blossomed beyond the bedroom, developing an eclectic sound and a starry-eyed following.
Where the ethereal meets the visceral is where you will find Timothy Eerie, with dreamy, hazy melodies accompanied by thick tones and rock’n’roll noise this band is the epitome of multi-faceted sound. Like many of the bands stemming from the psychedelic genre, there has been a revolving door of players and artists contributing to the project which only lends to their mystique. Backed by Fat Elvis Records & Nomad Eel Records they’ve shared the stage with such greats as La Luz, Dead Meadow, L.A. Witch, Kikagaku Moyo, Of Montreal, Acid Mothers Temple, and Holy Wave.
Orlando Weekly noted, “They’re astonishingly realized for a young group.. When [a fresh band] emerges from practically nowhere with this kind of skill, size and aesthetic, it’s a sign of something potentially very special.”
