Moonage Shine -- Catacombs EP

I never really quite know what to make of a Moonage Shine EP but I always enjoy where it takes me. Catacombs is murkier than the Texas-based band's previous releases. Instead of channeling heat stroke-induced visions, Catacombs asks us to descend deep underwater (or at least that's what I hear.)

As you settle into depths, every so often an intelligible lyric or a detuned country lick shimmers through. Catacombs seems to be invoking an ancient spirit -- someone much more innocuous than Cthulu, but potent nonetheless.
