Review: Space Coke - L'Appel Du Vide

Listening to the album while writing this post, its my first taste of Space Coke and instantly I love the feeling. I know I have just gotten hooked and once I'm done listening I will need more. The crackling fuzzed out riffs are something I will never tire of. The retro vibes and the vintage horror sections create this feeling of nostalgia for a generation that I wasn't even alive for. That is some black magic skill right there that the band should be proud of. 

The real icing on the cake though is the cover of 'Evil' by Stevie Wonder. The organ, the soul, all behind a cloudy haze and that vibrant voice of Deborah Adedokun. God damn. The album is good but that one track is amazing. No discredit to the rest of the album, I'm just a sucker for female vocals. 

 If you enjoy your rock psychedelic and a tad bit funky than grab a straw and inhale a big ole hit of Space Coke. 

Below you can sample their South Cackapulco Gold EP before diving straight into the full length available on the 7th. 

"While regular high quality coke emerges from Colombia, you need to go to Columbia, South Carolina for Space Coke. Long in hair and fuzzy in tone, the band are dealers of the riffiest, most psychedelic form of drugs - this latest strain entitled L’Appel du Vide. Their first full-length after two warm-up EPs, the record will be released on December 7th 2018 via Mystery School Records.

Much like their previous EPs, L’Appel du Vide references a gamut of cultural touchstones, from 1950s horror movies to Hindu mythology, Crowleyan occultism to suicidal ideation. Space Coke ride through each theme with grace and flair, landing on the magnificent closer “Evil”, a Stevie Wonder number featuring the vibrant voice of Deborah Adedokun, and additional noise elements from one-man project Xothun. The eight tracks fly by in a heartbeat, but that only means that - once having calmed down - you’re ready to do the Space Coke lines all over again."
