Brooklyn, New York-based psychedelic retro rock power trio THE GOLDEN GRASS will release their third full-length, titled Absolutely, next month via Listenable Records. An eight-track sonic adventure steeped in psychedelic flavored blues riffs, the mind-warping fantasy of early progressive/jazz rock, a pulsating British freakbeat/mod sound, heavy doses of proto-metal power, funk, soul, and a southern rock edge, Absolutely is undoubtedly the band’s strongest, most accomplished offering to date.
The Obelisk is currently streaming ” The Spell” in advance of Absolutely‘s release noting, “their good-times spirit is delivered with genuine and engaging energy… it puts them in a category of their own in heavy rock, and remains a very-much-needed breath of fresh air in a heavy rock scene so often geared toward pessimism… THE GOLDEN GRASS remain a singular good time and sound more content than ever to let the rest of the world do what it is while they throw a party to which anyone and everyone who can get down – even for just a little while – is invited. That means you. They don’t want your blood. They just want you to dance. For those who take on the dare to let loose and meet THE GOLDEN GRASS on their own level, Absolutely should be no less revered than anything they’ve done to-date. If anything, more so.”

Nodding to the likes of such American rock legends as The James Gang, The Allman Brothers, and Grand Funk Railroad, the soulful British psych/mod of The Move, The Pretty Things, and The Action, and the heavy umph of Budgie, Blue Cheer and Blackfoot, THE GOLDEN GRASS synthesizes their influences into a seamless, memorable, and high-energy performance. Kerrang hailed the band’s, “sunburst anthems, rainbow brightness, heat-haze psychedelia,” while Classic Rock commended a band that, “grooves away in a manner of The Who via ’60s New York,” adding, “Heavy, Black Sabbathish riffs grow into spacy jams…But it’s their capacity for swinging rock’ n’ roll that gives them serious charm.”
