Meatbodies Discuss "Alice"
Mon, 13 Mar 2017 08:49:57
Meatbodies are currently out on the road, living the rock 'n' roll dream of touring an album, Alice, which has been widely received as being a quiet classic from a band who promise big and deliver well. Describing the album the band have said it's "a near fable of fear, sexuality, war, religion, technology, peace, philosophy, hedonism, sociology, evolution, and ecclesiasticism." — but those are just words. The best way to get to the root of this psych-rock collection is the old-fashioned approach of simply putting it on and turning it up.
There's something of Sabbath about this band, but then there's also something of Bowie-like experimentalism, all served on a bed of garage borne humility from the southern Californians. If you're into anything like rock music you're going to be into Meatbodies, they've collaborated with sludge-rock influencer Ty Segall, and they're even drawing praise from punk miserablist and godfather of grump and good sense — Henry Rollins.
ARTISTdirect caught up with Meatbodies in the back of their van as they were heading somewhere from somewhere on the endless route of shows, sounds and hard-rocking love.
