Backseat Mafia review of Anthroprophh – Crow with Sore Throat

Backseat Mafia have written the following about Anthroprophh track Crow with Sore Throat, the first track revealed off Anthroprophh's new Album Outside the Circle released on 15 September:

Autumn is shaping up to be a brilliant time for heavy Psych fans with any number of new albums coming out from some amazing bands. One of those that I was particularly looking forward to is the new Anthroprophh album.

The first album, mainly a solo project by Paul Allen, of cult band The Heads was great; and there was a sign of things to come in the 12” of Precession from that album, remixed with Bristol duo The Big Naturals, who are collaborating with Allen on the new album, a new track from which has just been released (see a review of both here).

All I can say is that if this is anyway representative of the album as a whole then it is going to be immense. My first impression is that, man, is it heavy! Some great guitar work all the way through and some really heavy electronica, also picking up on the Eastern rhythms of the previous album.

This has all the hallmarks of being one of the top releases of the year and, coming out in mid-September, just in time for the band’s appearance at the Liverpool Psych Fest: they’d better reinforce those old buildings as this could bring the roof in.

Full album review to follow…
