Floorian- More Fiend (Drigh Records
From Aural Innovations May 2009 update
Floorian is an Ohio based band that has released a few things. This is the band latest release and it features some really cool psychedelic rock and drone music. Nice glossy slipcase for this dark musical journey to the parts of your mind you might not go yourself without being dragged. The opening track, Never Even, features a quite tortured guitar, some nice effects and quite a psychedelic feel and as you gets pulled back and forth with the sound. The Lower Room starts off with some acoustic guitar in the left and electric in the right speaker. This is a great psychedelic rocker with some cool guitar solos, a bit in the background though. Missed starts very droning and is a big contrast to the last track. Quite a lot of deep end on this track. How far, how Fast is next and begins with a loud distorted guitar before the drums and the rest of the band kicks in for this slow heavy and psychedelic track, which reminds me a bit of some of the UK psych stuff from the 80’s. The CD ends with a long 6 track suite called Scance. I got totally sucked into this record. Really cool music. Oh yeah..It is not all instrumental, the bass player, also does some singing but it is usually mixed quite low and not really meant to be in the forefront.
