Not-so-distant cousins of Californian dark-siders The Doors with a détour further South to gather some influences from The Black Angels (who named them their protégés), French band Eagles Gift are releasing their brand new album An Astral Journey today via Wild Valley/Modulor.

The nine-track LP is an engaging trip, with many shades of psych colouring the album in jingle-janglish purple ('Say It Again'), contemplative pink ('Pretend To Be Dead'), and even post-punk mustard yellow ('Nightwalker'). A special shoutout to 'Charlie's Violence' - a track legendary film director Alejandro Jodorowsky included on the soundtrack to his forthcoming film Poesía Sin Fin, which was presented at Cannes earlier this year.
