Too Down To Die

Too Down To Die by Robedoor
Released: Aug 2011
Label: Not Not Fun
The Spacemen 3-inspired title says it all. This expansive slab of drone is all about downer space-blues drowning in a wall-of-sound ecstasy that's both titanic and uncontrollable. Unlike previous releases, however, Too Down to Die doesn't contain a whole lot of murk. It's gorgeous and sublime in a decidedly streamlined manner. What's more, the synthesizer and electronic components have been pushed to the fore, as if the band intended for the sphere on the album cover to be mistaken for a disco ball. After the 22-minute opener, the tracks get progressively shorter -- but no less psychedelic.
