• Stonefield • (Australia. Flightless Records)
Stonefield have been rendering their powerful mosaic of proto-psych, since they were only as tall as the smallest of the strange stone formations that surround their home town in rural Australia. For over a decade, the band have seemingly existed within their own stellar nebula; unaffected by fleeting modern musical trends, their sound is a homage to the prog, metal and psych powerhouses of the 70s whilst remaining completely their own.
Their second full-length LP As Above, So Below (2016) firmly established Stonefield as one of the key players in the current wave of Australian psychedelic rock, but with Black Mountain's Stephen McBean at the production helm, their new Flightless-released LP Far From Earth declares a shift towards ever-deeper straits. Heavy waves of operatic synth and tubular bells ring below overdriven guitars and haunting mellotron lines that warn you that humans don't belong in space.
