This week, AOL Music is hosting a USX listening party. Check out The Valley Path in its entirety HERE.
The latest full-length from the Appalachian masters of dark psychedelia comes out today via Neurot Recordings. The mammoth follow-up to 2010’s critically-lauded Run Thick In The Night consists of one, near 40-minute mammoth track of esoteric beauty.
In a recent review, About.com championed The Valley Path, calling it “a piece of music that lets off both realistic emotions and a dreamy ambiance.” Stereokiller agreed calling the record “a single-track opus fueled by sound-driven expanse and a spiritual tone expressed like bedtime prayer.” Cvlt Nation added: “This is 40 minutes of dark psychedelic bliss that only gets grander with each listen,” while Redefine noted: “…a mellow, cosmically tranced out, slow-burning blues jam of epic proportions.”
In related news, USX recently performed a handful of special acoustic shows. Check out some footage here:
