A silent nocturnal flight. An awareness gained while gliding through forests while sleep engulfs all else. The knowledge that dawn is approaching and being one of the first to see its pink and golden rays. Weird Owl is a Brooklyn band that resides in the heaviness inherent in the convergence of imagination, poetry and sound. First formed in 2004 and throught it''s odd mutations involving changes in approachand personnel, Weird Owl has arrived at the present day in its most solid and powerful formation yet. Taking its cue from the secrets of esoteric literature as from acts such as THE 13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS, CAPTAIN BEEFHEART & HIS MAGIC BAND, LOVE and CRAZY HORSE, WEIRD OWL has managed to create a sonic mindscape that half resembles the last prayers of an ancient priest-king and half resembles the translations of a future language fallen down from silvery space. The album is a tour-de-force of its peculiar craft - hypnotic slithering guitar lines, the strange breathiness of cosmic synths, a dash of the punishing heaviness of the riff - all contained with phantasmagoric song structures and expressed within the language of a true visionary experience.
