Prince Rupert’s Drops ~ “Lungs”

Brooklyn psychedelic garage rock ensemble Prince Rupert’s Drops have treated us to the second track from their highly-impressive debut LP, Run Slow. “Lungs,” which premiered on Friday via the good folks at East Village Radio, opens the album with a sprawling seven-and-a-half minute jammer that sets the tone for what follows. Beginning with a Quicksilver meets Fairport guitar intro, the song cruises through the valleys of West Coast psych with guitarist/vocalist Leslie Stein’s haunting vocals sailing on the distant shores. At the midway point, the song takes a turn toward an open-ended, dual guitar jam that demonstrates the group’s knack for extended improvisational journeys.

Hear the song over at East Village Radio.

Run Slow is the the long-time outfit’s debut LP, set to be released via Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records on November 13. Also be sure to check out the previously released LP track “Pillar to Post.”
