Shows I Go To is incredibly stoked to premiere Orlando-based and space-themed psychedelic trip-rock trio Cosmic Roots Collective’s newest song, “You Manic”!!!
The song immediately makes you feel like you’re floating on the moon and looking at Earth on the horizon. It comes in right away with guitarist Wheeler Newman’s soothing vocals trickling over some softly plucked acoustic guitar chords, both accompanied by a beautiful backing vocal melody provided by bassist/synthesist Ronnie Brannon and drummer Paul Mauceri.
Shortly thereafter a big, phat Moog comes in and suddenly you’re swaying and grooving along. And man, is that sound thick. It creates a hook in and of itself, which is not common in experimental/psychedelic rock. And it is oh, so addicting. Especially when accompanied with such solid vocals and complementary drumming.
The song reminds me of a mixture of things I love about The Flaming Lips, Sunny Day Real Estate, and Weezer. Enticing, comfortable melodies. Angelic vocal arrangements. So easily listenable that it entirety passes you by before you know it. Matter of fact, my only complaint about the song is that even though it’s more than four minutes long, when it ends I still want more!
Take your mind to the stars here:
Get to know the band personally here.
Then, come see them play live on Saturday, November 5th at Spacebar (2428 E Robinson St, Orlando, FL 32803) for an evening of SPACE PROG, along with my band, Locus of Chiron, as well as monsters Kirov and Jupiter Groove! ($6, 21+, doors @ 8:00)
